Hey Petr- I've actually been working on a similar project for OCAL for the
past few months, and vividly recall working through the issues you're
describing. You can check out the code at
and search this mailing list and the Inkscape developers list (at
http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?forum_id=36054 ) for "clipart
browser" to get a sense of where the project is. There's also a screenshot
and some other notes at http://summerofclipart.blogspot.com .
Ironically, my code was initially designed as an Inkscape extension,
analagous to what you're doing, but was made into a standalone program in
the hope that it would be usable by other projects as well, very
specifically including Scribus. Check out the code; its also in python, and
a lot of the features you're trying to add have already been implemented,
and its been through several releases and a bit of testing already. There's
some bad news of course; it uses GTK, instead of QT, but that's not an
insurmountable problem. If you'd like to get integrated into Scribus'
extension system (since Scribus 1.3.0 doesn't appear to support drag-drop or
copy-paste of SVG images from external programs), I'd be glad to help, and
even if not, a lot of the code could be reused, such as the metadata parser.
