[KPhotoAlbum] kphotoalbum doesn't recognize multiple file locations.

Both gqview and gthumb use *.gqv files to store data on image collections (which can work mostly like keyword files.) -- I would like to import those into
I am trying to import that data into kphotoalbum with either a kim file or by editing the index.xml file directly, but I need a couple details first:
o How will kphotoalbum react if I give arbitrary paths
o Do I need to supply the checksums, or can the app figure it out?
o Has someone already written a script to do this?
o Should I attempt to write a cpp file and share it, so it possibly could be integrated into the kphotoalbum trunk?
o Should I simply wait until the SQL back end is installed?
I have noticed that when I have multiple copies of a file, kphotoalbum arbitrarily picks just one of them to remember the file by (whether it is symbolic links or hard links). Maybe I am wrong about this. But when I removed one dir tree with copies, kphotoalbum assumed the pictures were gone and wouldn't use the alternates.
My solution (though I have no idea how the internals of the program work) would be to store multiple file locations in the xml file (just as you store multiple tags):
<value value="Gallery1/Dec01/example.jpg" />
