[Shotwell] Idea: improving import from camera

I have an idea how to improve the import from the camera.
Right now, I am pretty annoyed by the fact, that shotwell always creates
thumbnails directly after importing one picture. This is okay for jpegs
but takes quite a long time for RAW files, e.g. the CR2s from my Canon
This causes the camera to fall back into standby mode because no
access/action happens. This again causes shotwell to interrupt the
import of files because the camera is not present any more.
In my opinion it would be better to import all requested files first and
create the fitting thumbnails after that.
(you could still call it "inporting..." and leave the user thinking
Shotwell is currently importing files)
regards and Merry Christmas,
