It could be a nice idea to make a thumbnailer that uses gdk-pixbuf to
generate thumbnails...

But that still means that it's a security issue if you open untrusted
content via gdk-pixbuf. Like in Evolution.

I wouldn't trust GStreamer on that. Or Xine. Or any media framework. They
all didn't have security audits yet...
