Old revisions of file pages should have old versions of files/images as the primary image.

Description:
If the current behavior is kept it must be made clear that the picture shown is a cached image of the most recent version. I can see that thumbnail creation could be a issue here--although it might annoy some people old revisions could fall back to the little thumbnail if the image is too large to be shown outright.

Note this is *not* a dupe of bug 12995 -- this is referring to which large-size image is shown *on* the 'File:' description page itself when viewing an old version.

Is this actually any more feasible to accomplish than bug 12995?

It shouldn't be a problem to add an explanatory note like "Image shown might have changed since the date of this old version".
