I'm pretty convinced now that digikam is the best open-source picture
management around. Thanks for that wonderful piece of software.

Still I'm coming back to the issue mentionned above :

Since each directory under the root picture directory is considered an
album, how can we "hide", in the Album-sorted-by-Collection view,
directories wich holds no picture but only sub-directories (on the
file system), in order not to end up with "empty" albums (should I say
"empty of picture", as they're not really empty since they contain
sub-albums) in this view ?

This makes me think about the same kind of "folder and mailbox"
concept implementations for IMAP : some consider a folder can only
contain a sub-folder or a mailbox (but only mailboxes may hold
messages), others don't mind considering a folder can, *in addition*,
be a mailbox (i.e. contain messages)...

thanks.
