Ok, I'll give that a try. Since Photo is a Python Product,
what will happen to current instances if I make this (and
only this) change?

I'm not certain that that makes sense, since the Images are
really cached 'views' of the Photo object. When a new image
is uploded to replace an existing one, *all* versions
(thumbnails, small, medium, large, etc) are regenerated.

But assuming that I went so far as to break out the Images
to their own Rack, would you reccomend that each image size
have a dedicated Rack, or would you suggest that all images
be stored in the same Rack?
