I had never heard of "sxiv" and just learned about it throught this mail
thread. I like it!

Personally, I would opt for taking out the thumbnail view and maybe
try to get rid of the font handling (if possible; maybe just use a key
press to write the file name to stdout?) to reduce the dependencies

Of course one could get rid of all the image format dependencies and
use only farbfeld, if one finds someone willing to write/debug farbfeld
converters for all image formats so that sxiv would only have to speak

But talk is cheap and I am lazy... so thanks for sxiv! :)
