A while ago I posted a mediafiletype patch which implemented
subcategories for images and videos by file extension, so you would have
jpg, cr2, nef, png, .. subcategories under images and similar under
videos. There you have all your usual searching and set operations. For
me it was the only half-way reasonable way for working with jpg+raw in
KPA, but the patch didn't make it into trunk. It was against a 3.0ish
version of KPA. Is that something which would meet your needs?

I can't promise porting it to KPA 4. I'm kind of fed up with raw
thumbnails and display orientation being broken again in KPA 3.1 and KPA
4svn (I had a patch in KPA 3.0.2). Also, Bibble 5 with image management
facilities may come out out before KPA has image stacking/grouping...
