But there's plenty of "odd" sizes with
lots of thumbs too. For example,
over 65K files with width 181px
181px images are tipically made when 180px images are "bad", with the
squid/scaler refusing to deliver the latest version. Adding 1px there
forces a regeneration of the file, solving the issue.
Going up to 65K seems too much, though.

I believe the status quo is no thumbs (of any
size) are generated at
upload time. They are all just done on demand.
That's correct in theory. In practice (for uploads using
Special:Upload at least) the user is redirected to the file
description page after a successful upload, which contains a thumb of
the file of a given size (800px?), which is then immediately generated
on demand :) . Special:UploadWizard has similar behavior: the success
page contains 200px(?) thumbs of all the images the user uploaded.
Plus another tiny one at the file history section.
I remember seeing a change about rounding the requested image size some
months ago, so the "request any size" may not be true any longer.
