[Clipart] Pre-release Package for 'openclipart'

Forgive me if this suggestion is going round in circles. But...
Why not have a directory structure based on the submission date for 
general storage. This would allow nicu's readme to reside with the 
files on the server anyway. There could then be a translation process, 
taking the keywords from the metadata and creating an appropriate 
directory structure. It would also have the added advantage that if we 
were trying to generate a package for a specific "area", files with 
multiple categories could be pulled together in an appropriate 
structure rather than left in a more general structure.

When transfered to a client oriented structure, clearly we don't want 
millions of readmes from different authors kicking around so either we 
can embed them in the svg files or host the readmes and embed a link to 
them. (I think that's a better plan personally)
