Yep, kuickshow's my favourite -- Page Up/Page Down to jump through a selection of images, too. However, it doesn't have all the bells and
whistles I enjoyed in the "xv" days.

Agreed BTW about the ee UI. it's a nightmare. You left out the bug whereby you could wind up with some kind of toolbar attached to the image -- sorry, can't remember exactly *how* at this stage -- however, if the image was too small, it would be *scaled* in the X dimension (yes -- the *image* would be scaled) to the width of the toolbar! truly bizarre.

I really like kuickshow, but there is one thing that
stops me from using it. If I call xv *.jpg in a directory
with many images, xv will open one window and let me
page through the images.
If I do the same with kuickshow, it will open a new window
for each file, effectively killing my system if the
directory is large.

"kuickshow ." will do what you want. But I agree -- it's a serious UI problem, as that's not obvious.
