Although I think that the additions to our ShowImage are mostly useful, 
I can't see a reason why this kind of functionality should be in a 
generic image viewer.
I think the current feature set of ShowImage is really okay, incl. the 
slide show. I.e. why should one download an extra application if you 
just want to show your relatives pictures of your new appartment or 
whatever. IMO it's a tiny and reasonable feature.
