| Hierarchies (Unix filesystem, yahoo's directory) sucks when you have
| to much data, you need to do what google does with PageRank on the
| web, what Kimdaba does for pictures, or what Tenor intends to do for
| the whole desktop. PageRank works because you have hyperlinks between
| pages, on the desktop, this does nto exists yet. Tenor intends to let
| application set programmatically context information (eg. kmail says
| that picture P whas attached to a mail M from a given person). For
| kimdaba this would mean : store our information about pictures on
| Tenor's database, and on the other hand, use the information provided
| by other apps to have a better search.
Well, seems like the database split fits perfect into this.
I'll keep an eye open for this, there really is no reason for kimdaba to rush 
ahead and do stuff before the rest of the desktop is ready.

Thanks for the overview.

Having trouble finding a given image in your collection containing
thousands of images?

http://ktown.kde.org/kimdaba might be the answer.
