here it is
it's just a draft, as the name suggests, full of kdebug(), comments and junk 
code, but it works

it supports few things, only to show it is fast (it takes a second to scan 450 
files here, and freebsd ufs2 is slower than ext3) and it can be done 
efficiently (i think there's room for speed improvements... i've made 
something really simple):
- create a new project and add some clips, but DO NOT insert them in the 
- close the project
- rename or move those clips
- open the project and test the options (the producer is still not updated, so 
the thumbnail will be red or... ?)

what's missing?
- timeline clips refresh
- producer refresh after an automatic search (but saving an restarting 
obviously works)
- mh... slideshows? i didn't take care of them, still don't know how they work
- old broken projects (wrong paths and no hashes) result in their clips to be 
"left as placeholders"... i don't think it's safe to let the user replace a 
file manually (image instead of video, 1min file in place of 1hour file... 
- and probably there's something broken :P

what do you think?
