The "Unix Way" of doing this would be to allow the shell to provide the
files to view. So, for instance, if you invoked imgv as

`imgv stockphotos/children/`

imgv should stat stockphotos/children and see that it's a directory, and
handle it accordingly (whether that's recursing into all child directories
or just doing the image files in that directory).

Otherwise, if one did

`find stockphotos -iname "*aqua*.jpg" -print0 | xargs -0 imgv`

imgv would receive a list (possibly a very long one) of filenames provided
by the find utility.

In the context of your example above (`imgv all`) I'd suggest instead `imgv
*` and allow the shell to expand the asterisk into all of the files in the
current directory.

For the sake of argument, it might be preferred to have a switch that
ignores files that can't be opened by imgv, like so:

`imgv --ignore-non-images *`

because the shell will espand the asterisk for all files in the current
directory, and you wouldn't want imgv to try to open and display "imgv.c"
for instance. :)
