Why Kimdaba uses an XML file for storing all information about the
images. XML files are quite handy if they are not to big, but
10.000 images are not to much for an image database, but big for a
single XML file.
What do you think about using SQLite Database for storing the
information. SQLite is a full working SQL database, and has the
advantage that all information are stored in one single file which
could be copied as the index.xml.
One advantage of XML is that it's easy to read (and fix) the file on
the fly with any text editor.
