Okay, cool. In time we should probably expand on this to allow
selection from the set of existing keywords, like we've been

I think we discussed it only on the mailing lists; you can probably dig
it out of the list archives.

Cool. I have that on my todo list but unfortunately won't be able to
get to it any time soon, so if you could take care of it, that'd be very
cool. I can add the script to SVG::Metadata to keep it together with
One script that would be really useful right now is something that
navigates through a directory tree and extracts keywords from the path
to the svg file, then updates the metadata for the svg file accordingly.
I.e., if it finds a file at collection/animal/mammal/dog/collie.svg it
would insert keywords 'animal', 'mammal', and 'dog' into collie.svg.
This script would let us leverage the work that's been done to quickly
categorize the images in the last release. Then we'd only need to work
on categorizing the newly submitted images.
