Yay. I think this is a good addition and is towards making Special:NewFiles obsolete. It makes the table a bit crowded though (it already was).

What I don't understand is why you are renaming img_thumb to thumb?

It basically is a fake table column. The way Special:Listfiles and the underlying TablePager works, is that each column in the HTML table should correspond to a column in the database table. formatValue() will be called for each field, and only with the current field. For a thumbnail we need to know img_name, and as such we need a hack to rename thumb to thumb as img_name.

The table could use a UI designer indeed.

Also I was thinking that this page should be listed in the top navigation bar next to "my contributions" as "my uploads"

That explains it indeed.

I'm not sure if new top-level item is the best option, maybe it should be integrated to my contributions in some way or another.
