I have considered having a way to use filenames to create groups.
Still all in my head, but should be doable.

I'm trying to get a little icon overlayed on master images (which BTW,
is a much better name than parent). I think double-click should still
be view, as it is now. But maybe double-clicking on the overlayed icon
could be used to show the children.

Currently, you just drop images on top of the one you want to be a
master. But I'm not sure if this is the best scheme.

A final note: Master sounds better than parent. But child/children
also has a strange sound to it. Maybe "version", or something like
that could be used instead.
