Another question and need for comments.
I also notice that Riley uses Rapid Photo Downloader. This is interesting
in that he has at least two other applications that "seem" to preform the
same task. This probably means that this app does the job he uses it for
much better than those other apps. In our case Dark table seems to be able
to do the same thing, but I noticed when I tried to use DT for importing
photos it seems to take a long time... without doing any of the things RPD

Should we be adding Rapid Photo Downloader to our workflow? (exists in
ubunt repos) This will add 7.6 M to the user's disk. On the live iso I
believe it would be compressed. The compressed package and deps is just
under 2Meg.
