Btw: has adding thumbnail image support to the ZIM file format been
considered?  This would be very handy for a ZIM file selector in a
tablet or phone UI.

ZIM is able to store anything, also pictures. Most of the ZIM files are with thumbnails.

I think Douglas wanted to know if it was possible to add a picture to the meta-data of the ZIM itself ; like the name & author, so that a ZIM collection library can be viewed with pictures only (on a phone).
Douglas, the answer is yes ; Almost all (if not all) ZIM produced by Kiwix includes a thumbnail.
