ok, I probably didn't check it that thoroughly (I usuall only select
one picture).

If nobody looks into it earlier, I try to find some time this weekend.
Need to do some time re-allocating to work more on kpa.
I hope to allocate half a sunday for kpa for each of the next couple of weeks.

Definitly .. I still have a big todo list I wrote down for myself last
November; its a bit cryptic (even I have to think what I meant with
certain entries in this list), so I won't send it to the list
verbatimly right now.
However, I think it would make sense to have a global 'todo'-list
small and large to have at a central place; how is this done in
kphotoalbum ? Is there a wiki-page with todo-items or a
bug/feature-tracker somewhere ?

Seems that some of them are already integrated, the others had
problems I need to address first.
