How to display the “media” template on products list, like in product view

I’m trying to replace the thumbnail in the category view / products listing (catalog/product/list.phtml) by the “media” block that is called in the product view page like this :

I added this call in the <div class="product-image">, replacing the original IMG tag.

And I tried adding some block definition in catalog.xml :

<block type="catalog/product_list_media" name="product_list_media" as="media" template="catalog/product/view/media.phtml"/>
right after
<block type="catalog/product_list" name="product_list" template="catalog/product/list.phtml">

So after a little bit of trial, I get passed a couple of errors, but so far, no call to the template, no images, just emptiness.

Does more need be done? or is it just that my code and xml is plain wrong?

If any XML Guru can provide his guidance, thanks already for looking into it smile
