Image blobs should be printed as images instead of hexdumps

Cgit currently prints a hexdump when you look at a image blob (as with 
any other binary blob). This might be a good way to show generic binary 
files, but I think images (at least png, jpg) should be shown as images.

Example of the current behaviour:

I suggest that instead of the hexdump you would have HTML like this:
	<img src="" />

SVG images are not binaric so I would leave them printed as text.

What do you think about this?
