On the subject of importing things, I've just been importing 10,000 photos 
that I took a couple of years ago, and have kept with short files in psuedo 
xml format to describe them.  In order that I don't loose much info, I've 
just written a short perl script to read each xml file, and compile into a 
kimdaba 1.1 file.  It seems to work quite well, although, kimdaba seems a 
little loaded by the extra images (I am comiling 2.0 which may have something 
to do with it).

If this can be of any use to someone then let me know, and I'll publish the 
script. - Should be fairly customisable to read in different formats.

BTW Jesper, is there any chance that there will be an option to merge kimdaba 
databases? or shall I just write another 1/2 hour perl script?
