If Google's WebP format increases in popularity (eg with rumored default
support in future versions of Chrome), it could be advantageous to support
generating thumbnails in WebP as an alternative to JPEG; WebP images can
generally fit the same quality into a smaller filesize, which cuts down on
bandwidth usage and download times.

In the ideal case, WebP images should be shipped out on-demand to any browser
that declares support for them.

The biggest difficulty would be in getting content-type negotiation working for
image fetches for anonymous page views! Ah, caching. ;) But even as an option
that triggers only for logged-in users, it's something to think about.
