That may be a good idea anyway. I used to cultivate my own directory
structure to keep my photos organized, but once I realized how
unflexible that one-dimensional tree is compared to the tagging you do
in F-Spot.

On the other hand I understand that people want to keep things in
control so that they can dump a software in favor of another at any
time. At least I do. That's why I try bundle my thoughts on that topic
at . :-)
