[Clipart] Pre-release Package for 'openclipart'

The basis of my date suggestion is the idea of having a "permalink" for 
each file that will not change. I think we all agree that as the 
project progresses the categorisation will change so how do we provide 
permalinks if the locations are based on categories?

Admittedly if we don't want permalinks (I think they'd be very useful 
for users to be able to lock down which image they want exactly, 
especially for images which exist in multiple categories) then this is 
not an issue.
