I understand know, and also vote for that feature.

Ok, I was having doubts on using the description or label for it.
Probably, label is better for writing something really descriptive for
some photos on  one set.

Show Folders.
Your explanation has shown me how to do it, and this behavior is great
for me because I have already description on folders names.

I can say now that Kphotoaalbum is better each time I use it.

Yesterday 3.0.x (something between 3.0.1 and 3.0.2)
Now compiling 3.0.2 (never had a problem compiling here (kubuntu 6.10)
