I've looked at it and it is not nearly sufficient for the present needs. 
Mayhaps could be build upon, but then, it might pay off to look for 
better tools somewhere else. The way I see it OpenClipart needs:

* an upload gadget with some form of validation that warns contributors 
of invalid sgml, missing metadata etc.
* a review mechanism (moderator interface) with login and user management
* a comments mechanism
* a browseable index with thumbnails

OutSide Photos has an upload gadget with configurable constraints on 
image type, size etc., login and a very simple administrative interface. 
It should create thumbnails from raster images using gd, but I couldn't 
get this to work properly (I didn't try much - just took it out of the 
box more or less, and it's alpha). Attractive minimalistic interface, 

I'll keep looking though...

Best regards
