I think it should be our goal to minimize this "moving around" time. OTOH we don't want images to have the highest priority in general.

yes, this is something I want to be able to experiment with..
especially as some image formats get larger to accommodate ever more
impressive displays. Its a good argument for reprioritization I think
as the simplest mechanism.
