Bug Description

Now that Unity supports previews, we want to make the gwibber lens more useful by utilizing previews. This has been a long time goal and would improve the experience with the lens.

This also provides a great way to show case the Ubuntu Online Accounts integration in the desktop, which is a key deliverable for 12.10.

Since this is going to impact the visible interfaces, a UIFe is needed here as well [1]. Please send email to the docs team including screen shots, and paste the link to the email in this bug.

What testing has been done to date on this? With it landing late what is the plan if there is a serious problem. Do we just disable it?

Can this feature be uploaded on its own? Would prefer it not to be combined with bug fixes, so we have an easy way of backing it out, if it proves problematic.

Part of the change needs to land in unity and libunity, but that would not be used without the gwibber lens. So the easy way to back out the change would be to downgrade the lens version. The change to the lens itself is minimal, most of the code is in adding a new preview type to unity.

The gwibber lens still isn't installed by default, right?

In that case, +1 from the Docs Team.

Ok, I'll still give a +1. I can install the gwibber lens for the screenshots then. We won't really have any docs for this feature in particular though.

Approved. Please work with the unity team to make sure the necessary reprequisites land before beta 2 freeze.
