This is the API that I came up with, which could live in either gdk-
pixbuf, or GTK+, dependency-wise. It might also be small enough to
copy/paste although I count 15 users of just the C API in Debian
Codesearch[1], so it might be worth having in a shared library anyway.

typedef enum {
    GNOME_DESKTOP_THUMBNAIL_FLAGS_NONE = 0,
    GNOME_DESKTOP_THUMBNAIL_FLAGS_SAVE,  // Whether to save the created (successful or failed) thumbnail to the cache
} GnomeDesktopThumbnailFlag;

#define GNOME_DESKTOP_THUMBNAIL_FILE_ATTRIBUTES                 \
        G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_THUMBNAIL_PATH ","                     \
        G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_THUMBNAILING_FAILED ","                \
        G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_THUMBNAIL_IS_VALID ","                 \
        G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_PREVIEW_ICON ","                       \
        G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_TIME_MODIFIED ","                      \
        G_FILE_ATTRIBUTE_STANDARD_FAST_CONTENT_TYPE

// About @info:
