Personally I would vote for inclusion of geeqie, a fork of gqview still in alpha state -
even though very stable and a loooot faster and nicer than gqview - also it might be
stable until karmic.
I have replaced my beloved gqview with it and until now I'm really satisfied.
(btw, geeqie alpha3 - that's the most recent version - is already in the ubuntu jaunty
