my mistake: i should have informed you that i reorganized my images and 
created some new categories, like "jigsaw" 
(http://nicubunu.ro/clipart/?gallery=jigsaw) and "symbols" 
(http://nicubunu.ro/clipart/?gallery=symbols), also my scope is to 
eliminate the "misc" category (http://nicubunu.ro/clipart/?gallery=misc) 
- now only 3 images are left in it.
also i plan to kill "special" by redistributing images in other categories

many images suffered some improvements (IMO), so a resync is needed.

i provide now all categories as separate tarballs: 
http://nicubunu.ro/clipart/tarballs/ as well all images in one single 
file: http://nicubunu.ro/clipart/tarballs/all_svg_nicu.tgz

IMO, we should integrate some categories, like "birthday" and my "happy" 
(make them parts of a super category?)
also, we have now categories like "folders" and "books" - i provide too 
a folder image and two books in my "office" category. the same for 
"tools" and probably other
and how about duplicate names? i have (not yet uploaded) an ant image. 
obviously named "ant.svg", but there is another one already in "animals"

well, after adding my new "jigsaw" and other few new images, it will 
increase to over 600

you can kill my README and unite the folders, it was intended only to 
specify "Public Domain", until we solve it inside the SVG file

at least my images suffered a heavy reorganization, so probably you want 
to review it and update images for release
