+1 on Layout Reorderer
+1 on Image Reorderer

Lightbox Reorderer to me sounds like something to re-order Lightboxes  
(not the images within them). :) I think the suggestion of Thumbnail  
Reorderer probably reflects the fact that we are all intimately  
familiar with what these components do. To others coming to the  
project to use components for the first time, the name may be  
confusing. Image Reorderer seems much less ambiguous.
