   I understand. Only disadvantage by doing it after having parsed the
   XML file, is that it requires running through all images again, to
   establish the parent/child relation. But I guess, that this doesn't
   really matter.

We should make sure that this doesn't have performance implications on
large databases (20,000~50,000 images).
