We just display the small image right now. Main challenge is detecting that there is a linked-to image (wasn't a good hint in the API last I checked).

Once we get the detection piece figured out...as for ui, we should probably just skip the small image and download the large image directly; it's almost certainly what the user wants anyway.

Detection idea: Assert link is larger preferred image iff it is an image (via Content-Type or file extension) and has the same aspect ratio as the smaller image.

This comic includes a link attribute in its JSON response the links to a larger image. http://xkcd.com/1688/info.0.json
