comment Thumbnails of other frames in beamer
@William Okay, I fixed the bug (recent versions of beamer made the command \insertsectionhead insert hyperlinks instead of just the text, which can't be written to the aux file, so I had to use \secname instead). I also included a few improvements and bugfixes. Note it'll crash badly (you'll have to erase the .aux and friends to recover from that) if you insert any "advanced punctuation", accents or fragile commands in the frame title. To circumvent that, you can provide a \thumbframetitle without weird stuff (and leave weird stuff in the regular frame title). I hope to fix it someday.

@William I think the code is a bit old and has a few bugs, so I'll look into it tomorrow.

Your changes are nice, however I prefer specifying along with the frame's definition itself which frames should be displayed in the index using \begin{onethumb}[2]…\end{onethumb}, rather than giving arbitrary frame numbers. When using your solution, if I insert a new frame somewhere in the presentation (or a new "subframe" using beamer's overlays), then I'll have to increment accordingly some of the frame numbers passed to the \usepackage….

comment draw and fill options ignored in column style
I accepted Andrew Stacey's answer because it condained more explanations, but this one works too (and that's the one I ended up using). Do you know if there's a difference between nodes= and every node/.style= in that situation (AFAICT both have the same effect)?

comment draw and fill options ignored in column style
Out of curiosity, do you know how one would define a "family" of options based on the template column #1 nodes=#2, in a more elegant way than using a foreach loop to define many options? I tried column/.style args={#1:#2}{column #1/.style={every node/.style={#2}}}, which is used like this: \matrix[matrix of nodes, column=1:{draw=red}, column=2:{draw=blue}] { ... };, but the syntax doesn't feel quite as idiomatic as it should.

comment How to insert a linebreak in a TikZ matrix node?
I still get ! Package tikz Error: Giving up on this path. Did you forget a semicolon?. when compiling your example, without any modification. What version of tikz or other is required for this to work?

comment Set a tikz node's contents from a style
@Qrrbrbirlbel Thanks, execute at end cell={\node{#1.#2};} seems to do the trick. If you post your comment as an answer, I'll accept it.
