Doesn't exif search in KPA know how to do this?

If not, what'd happen if you use bash & exiftool to symlink all large
images to a single folder, then open that folder with KPA, tag them as
'large', then save and remove symlinks?

And as far as I know, KPA sorts the files based on EXIF date, not file date
