I've done some basic cleanup of the keywords of the incoming clipart; I
consolidated keywords that clearly go together, and removed some
others.  I decided to delete keywords that weren't English, on the
philosophy that translations probably should be mapped onto english
metadata rather than be embedded in the metadata itself.

However, even with that work there were still keywords going in that I'm
not sure are right.  I think it would be better if the keyword cleanup
could be done independently of the release process.

As well, I haven't touched the keywords from the 0.17 release, although
I see that there is some work needed to clean up those keywords too.

Anyway, once the 0.18 release goes out, there is an opportunity for
someone to attack the keywords and get them straightened out.  

Matthew or Nicu, would either of you be able to take charge of this
work for the coming month?
