Hang on, so with KDE4.3 digikam is now *required* to be installed alongside
all the other KDE apps? It's no longer possible to have a private
build/install? I do not want to install the betas from source over the top
of the standard OS version (which is installed using the OS package system)
but I do want to test them.  I've upgraded to 4.3 and all my images have
disappeared. I'm not happy. Can you expand your answer explaining why this
is required now and if there is any plan to fix it? (last thing I want to do
is revert to v0.10.0). I've verified that digikam now ignores new files in
the album directories as well as the old.

Building the svn version doesn't fix anything.
