I've a suggestion / feature request for the API. Can you please add
the equivalent of the thumbnail URL which returns the bigger image?

I imagine that there can be applications which want to show first the
thumbnail and then, e.g. upon click/selection, the bigger version of
the thumbnail for further user-inspection. Right now, this is possible
only by either embedding some web-browser widget to show the /package/
URL, or by spawning an external web browser.

An intermediate level would be good, and I guess it's trivial to add.
