The particular case there is an animated GIF, which is one of those fun
worst cases. It might be nice to have a clean way to detect animated
files and treat them specially; at a minimum I'm sure there's work yet
to be done on ensuring that they're generated optimally. (Though it
might be best to just not thumbnail them.)
