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

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.

definitely a great feature. But this only enables two states, ideally I
would like to have a more flexible image state.
