The topic says it all. When the Open dialog needs to generate a preview thumbnail, it calls the open plugin non interactively. However, if the plugin knew that only a small thumbnail is needed, it can use in many cases the one stored in the file. This can result in a speed up of many orders of magnitude when raw files are the target.
