As you say, that is _my_view_; you can disagree with it, of course, and 
apparently you do. Calling it rude, well, that's your opinion. I was just 
trying to point you to a program that seemed closer to the way you wanted 
things done. I won't go into any discussion of "OSS philosophy".

And you did miss my point about the culling, which is where I at least want 
to physically and permanently delete files that are either fails or almost-
duplicates. And as those are raw files, I'd rather do that from within 
Digikam. Same for experimental edits taht I want to get rid of (disk space 
is cheap, but keeping all images and every possible edit it comsuming it a 
bit too fast for my taste).

Well, I probably offended you again with my differing opinions...
Guess I'll shut up now
