[KPhotoAlbum] Patch: allow to show thumbnails on black background

JESPER: if you read this, can you check the 'by default reply to all'
- checkbox in the KPA mailman list admin? Now, by default it replyes
to the original sender, not the list.

But anyway: black background looks better than white, as usual (why,
oh why are all powerp.. oh.. openoffice impress presentations made
with white background.. Black just looks better..).

Though it's weird that the thumbnail view's background's black but
home view and category view backgrounds are white.

And since you're changing the thumbnail view layout: is there a reason
for the 'cell border lines' be shown? I'd be happy to be able to
remove those, I think that'd make KPA look a step more like 'a
professional software'.

OK, the lines might help a bit seeing rows & columns but.. well, not
sure.. Would it help if all images were vertically centered, still
keeping the image name in the bottom of the 'cell'? Now all thumbnails
are aligned to bottom, so vertical images fill the whole space as
horizontal photos leave a big empty space above them. Don't know..

And if that's changed, then also maybe the way a selected thumbnail is
shown, could be improved from the 'blue box that's never equal thick
from all sides' -thing to something more elegant?

Keep on doing the good work! It's been a pleasure seeing people
contributing with all great patches and ideas! The speed of
development here is nice, things & bugs get fixed quickly. Thanks
Jesper once again for this great software and thanks you all people


(going to get a new C2D 2.44GHz/2GB/800GB desktop on Tuesday.. Looking
forward to be able to edit & manage photos without waiting. KPA &
LightZone for Linux  ; )
