[Clipart] Raising activity

I think this is pretty cool, especially for your average click-n-drool 
windows user. Too bad the images can only be scaled down though... :) But 
we are going to have png releases, right? I'm no programmer, but isn't it 
conceivable to have a shellscript take a tarred SVG archive, untar the 
images, convert the lot of them to png with inkscape, and tar them again 
tacking -png at the end of the filename? (correct me if I'm being utopic).

On linux I assume you'd want to have a shared resource (/usr/share/clipart 
or suchlike) and point OpenOffice and other programs there.

One criticism: The installer didn't detect my OpenOffice installation and 
assumed it to be 1.1.0. I had to manually change the directory. Does it 
look for information in the registry?

Best regards
