Request for How-To: Thumbnail webscripts

I've recently download the Alfresco 3.0 Enterprise to evaluate. I'm very much interested in taking advantage of the thumbnailing features I've read about. I'm referring to the scripts located in the /org/alfresco/repository/thumbnail package.

My use case is that I have a space containing images and would like to invoke a script(s) to create and view thumbnails. The goal would be the return of a URL that could be placed on a web page, RSS media feed, etc.

I found this:
http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/3.0_JavaScript_Services_API#Thumbnail_Services
but given my newness to Alfresco webscripting, I'm unable to put 2-2 together and structure a URL request to the script properly to see the 'magic' happen. This isn't enough detail for me to leverage.

Does anyone have a solid example how to implement the use case I describe above? I'm very interested in seeing how the request to the webscript would be structured that produces thumbnails for a given space.
