I was poking at bug 4385, which hopes to add an option for scaled down images in the shiny new icon browser. What I found when I was playing around was that when the images are scaled (down to 50% width and height, so a quarter of the original size), the meta text feels very squished, and there's a high chance of your keywords or descriptions stretching things around nuttily. [ETA: that comment was based on an example mid-debug - the working version doesn't stretch around, but things get cut off if you have more than about one keyword and two words of description text.] Furthermore, I personally found that mini pictures with meta wasn't any more useful (in fact slightly less so) than just using the drop down selector in the first place, but I wanted to check with wiser people, (especially people with more than just a few icons, or who may be using the site differently than me).

How do people feel about perhaps leaving the option for meta info with scaled images out entirely? What I mean is that, instead of two toggles, one 3-way toggle with options of half sized images, full sized images, and full sized images with meta info.
