Yes but it is limited to KIPI plugins, hence limited to whatever KIPI
developers put in the package.  Passing a set of images to a shell
script enables people to very easily do all kinds of interesting batch

How do I search for !OK ? In the search window I can't type a keyword
not in the list and in the quick search, it does nothing.
Having a keyword that separates categorized images from uncategorized is
definitely a great feature. But this only enables two states, ideally I
would like to have a more flexible image state.
