Neat. I'll provide the build stuff that will generate a nice view.config file
as well as name the viewer plugins properly.

Linus wants them to be 'handlers' or 'filters' but in my head those names
don't make it any clearer. Anyone else with any preferences on the name issue?

Yes, that's what I want.

I think that's overkill. Settling with one fixed size icons should be good for
the forseeable future. But again:

Yeps. We could easily invent a new icon format anytime later on.
