Ahh, got it this time - what I was missing is that "save layout" is
under the Options button at the bottom.  Somehow I kept ignoring that,
but that (plus file->save) worked fine, thanks.

I posted a thok.org url later, but to answer this specifically: python
code using cElementTree to directly manipulate the index.xml. Since
there weren't any kipi plugins in python yet, it was a lot easier to
do that than to figure out how to plug a python interpreter into the
kipi API (I'm sure it's doable, but I was primarily trying to get some
pictures uploaded, and it was easy to figure out the index.xml just by
looking at it :-)
