   This is, in my mind only a spesific example of the more general
   idea that there can be more than one image-file that correspond to
   one and the same "picture".

   It would indeed be neat for Kimdaba to be able to somehow
   understand that multiple different image-files is still one
   "picture". I have, for example, raw *and* jpeg versions (sometimes
   even in multiple resolutions) of most (not all) my pictures. When I
   tag one of these as, for example "Person: Eivind" it'd be neat if
   Kimdaba understood that that means they *all* contain
   Eivind. Similarily, I do not really need 3 versions of the same
   image to show up in the thumbnail-list.

If this is done, it would be absolutely necessary to do it by
automated rules of some kind in addition to manual tagging.  It should
also be possible to group files that kimdaba can't display, such as
RAW files.
