I continue hearing this, all kimdaba users must be dumb as waterproof 
plastic ;-) Cant you just work the way god (in this case me) intended ;-)
Seriously, I'll have to look at the selection strategies at some point, 
obviously a lot of people get confused about it.

Yeah, I've had a similar need some time ago. I have some other emails on this 
topic that I'll have a look at one day (likely for 2.1) and do something

| Country
| Region
| Location
| Keywords
| Sport
| Event
| Folder

This sounds very specific to location, and I can't really see how to 
generalize that. Besides I'm sure that it means reworking a lot internally in

I'm not sure what that would mean, please explain.

select the images in question, and run Images->sort selection by date and
