Feature #8769: Remove "Snapshot" module and integrate its functionality into the stack
Creating a key accelerator to the original image when in darkroom
some times ago (~september 2010, in the thread "A week-end with Lightroom and Aperture) we talked about a key accelerator to the original image in darkroom.
So anytime in darkroom, pressing like "o" (for example) would show the original image (thus acting as a shortcut to the item zero of the history stack).

If i dont recall this wrong we talked about to automatically create a snapshot when image is open in darkroom which a keyaccel would enable/disable in full view..
Anyway this will be a snapshot of the current processing while entering, so with other words, a new untouched image would show the orginal, and if the image had some changes when entering darkroom that woudld be the snapshot.
Why i would prefer having it this way is that you have a "orginal" snapshot to compare your further processing against..

It might make sense to re-use the 'z' key that is used in lighttable mode like this:
pressing [z] gives a maximied preview of the image with the current stack (as in lighttable)
pressing [shift]+z removes the history stack in the preview.
So i could press and hold [z] and then press and release [shift] to compare the versions.
What do you think?

Afterthought on this:
I would like to risk some (slight) inconsistency in this:
- In LT-Mode, [z] shows the image with the active stack and [shift]+[z] shows the original image
- In DR-Mode, [z] shows the image with the active stack and [shift]+[z] shows the image with the second-to-last level of the active stack.
This behaviour is (I hope) not too confusing and will allow a quick check of the effect of the current plugin.
What do you think?

i like the press-z-get-original idea. auto-creating snapshots sounds costly and will preemptively slow down processing for everybody, so i don't think that's a good idea.
making snapshots more powerful is out of the scope of this ticket, we have another one for that (ticket #8769)
