That seems more logical. I think we need to consolidate our thinking on 
this in line with how people access clip art. I think people get pieces 
when they need it rather than from a big tarball of files.

Maybe we should look at the statistics, but I do think we need to keep 
our browse fresh, and channel people towards that visual interface as 
compared to a package of everything.
