I downloaded the files from the queue from that point in time, and put
them with the others in the "unsorted folder in the .18 release. I
then just opened up two windows and started sorting the image, using
my best judgement for where they should go. I also got rid of a bunch
of duplicates, though I probably missed some, and also removed
cliparts that were flagged as copyrighted in the bug tracker.

I couldn't understand how to use the scripts in the release procedure
on the wiki, so I wrote  a script that generated the txt files as
well. I think I still have that script arround here somewhere.

It probably took ~12 hours spread across a week or so. Nautilus seems
to be a lot more stable with SVGs these days, so I suspect it would
take a bit less now. :-)

If you think it'd be easier to import them from what I've got or if
you'd like to just look at what I've got, I can upload them.

Yes, those are included in the files I have.
