i guess what Gilles said was that, if collection == physical folders and
you have folders within folders, should these be shown nested (hierachial
like a tree) or should these be shown as a flat list of collections.
(there might be hierachial imagecollections in other cases too, like in

my belief is that the way images are collected into
collections/albums/folders should be upto the app and there is no need for
a separate individual image selection from the plugins. use the host app
to browse to whatever images the user wants to see and then the plugin
uses selection/allimages depending on the context. otherwise we will end
up creating a mini-app within libkipi to select images. for very specific
selection needs the kfile select dialog should suffice.
