That subclass is not really necessary, because you can reconfigure any
description instance to use your customized view:

    MAFileDescription new
        reportColumnClass: MMADescribedImageColumn;
        componentClass: MADescribedImageComponent;

>        html image

Something like this used to be part of Magritte. However, your table
or form will "explode" if you upload a typical 12 MB picture ;-)

I guess to make this really useable you need some code to resize the
picture accordingly. And this is unfortunately not possible on
different Smalltalk dialects in a platform independent way.
