[KPhotoAlbum] Importing Pictures from Camera

Hi all!

One area where KPhotoAlbum lacks a bit of functionality is the
importing of images into the KPA tree. I do not think that this import
step should be incooperated into KPA (as well as the image editing is
not part of KPA). This adheres to the Unix philosophy, especially the
"Make each program do one thing well." [1]

Nevertheless there is no proper standalone image importer, so I wrote
one, I'm shamelessly abusing this mailing list to publish it and ask
for feedback: https://github.com/astifter/PhotoImport

What I'm especially interesseted in is:
How do you import your photos, how do you sort them? Whats the time
granularity of your sorting? And do you shoot JPEG or RAW?
(Currently the tool supports importing the photos of each day from a
folder into a separate folder named YYYYMMDD_<custom> where the day
starts a 6:00 AM and lasts 24 hours.)

I hope these questions are okay on this list.

Cheers, Andi
