I'll add my use-case to this - I organise my photos by directory too,
and gthumb is the only program out of the three (EOG, Gthumb and f-spot)
that suits me for this. I think this is likely to be a quite common
situation, and if so there might be an argument for waiting for f-spot
to deal properly with this use case before including it by default.
