I prefer option B - but you need to be able to remove the files from
the ignored list, too.. For example I have my large DB file on the
laptop but only a part of the actual image files there. I'd be happy
if KPA showed me only the images I actually have with me, but if I'd
add more images there (that already are in the DB), it'd be possible
to tell KPA to re-check which images are not on the disk and start
showing the images I just brought in..
