in details folder. Currently I'm fighting all my kimdaba time trying to add
an SQL backend - I really wonder if those hours will ever pay off, cross your

| Say you have a picture with a new Person.
| Currently, you just type "Lea" <ENTER> in the "Persons" listbox and that's
| it, I love this simplicity and effectiveness.
| If you have to add clutter on this dialog, or if I have to enter the
| comment about this new person later, say in the browser, I would find it
| very boring.
| So I would recommand following rule :
| Type "Lea<ENTER>", you have a new keyword "Lea"
| Type "Lea : this is my girl<ENTER>", you get a new keyword "Lea" with a
| comment which begins after the semicolon, ie. "this is my girl"
| Of course, the comment should be editable in the browser too.
| My 2 cents.
