[KimDaBa] another feature request

Hi all!

As i was trying to move some of my older images to a CD i found out that
offline-support in kimdaba is kind of lacking.

What i wanted to do is to move some folders containing pictures to another
location to burn it on a CD. But when i moved the folders i found out that
the thumbnails were in a subfolder which prevented kimdaba from viewing
thumbnails when (re)moving the whole folder.

As the thumbnails are named with the name of the original file in it, it's
also not possible to do a thumbnail -> original file mapping if the
filenames were for example truncated to 8.3 because of a broken
CD-burning-program.

So what i suggest is the following:

1) move all the thumbnails in a folder at the very top (like  
   CategoryImages). What about a hidden directory .kimdaba/ with a
   CategoryImages and Thumbnails folders in it?

2) As kimdaba uses checksums anyway, why not use it in the names of the
   thumbnails?

What do you think about this?

- martin
