Beagle's GUI generates thumbnails only for search results, and it uses
the GNOME mechanism to do this.

I don't think it's a good idea for the crawlers themselves to do this;
it seems like a waste of disk space, and many of the thumbnails will
be outdated by the time they'd actually be displayed (in a search
tool, the file manager, etc.).
