Bug Description

deb-thumbnailer makes .deb files easier to understand, by making any application icon inside a .deb file appear as an emblem for that file. <http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2010/06/new-deb-thumbnailer-script-gives-deb-installers-application-icons-updated/>

Once it is ready, we would like to ship deb-thumbnailer in Ubuntu by default.

For clarity, it would probably a good idea to remove the debian logo from the icon if an application emblem is added.

That would not be a good idea Wouter.
If you assume that a rpm-thumbnailer is made available, then how would you differentiate between packages?
You should never lose context.

I agree that this has to be implemented.
Moreover, it would be great if the thumbnail is given a higher importance(make it prominent and main and big), and the standard ".deb" icon should be used just as an emblem, just as feedback to user that its not the main application and the package installer!
