That was initially my idea, but it doesn't seem predictable, according
to the current thread in d-devel, that I will be able to get a
screenshot of a proper size. I'd probably have to go either for
110x80, which is too small, or for 800x600 and resize it after
downloading, which I don't think makes sense. In any case the
screenshots page will be a good source for thumbnails, I guess. We
might consider making thumbnails available online ourselves in any
case, but that's for the future.
