I think we should move over requests not filled and completed and link
them to the completed images. I think using the wiki like we are for
this is good, but hard to track. However, it works and is good for now.

Anyway, I think this would be a good task for someone once the text-only
ability to submit clipart requests is into cchost:

1.) port over completed requests from the wiki
2.) connect up the initial request with the submission in ccHost

I don't think we should ever delete requests, new requests and/or filled
requests. I would even like to add paypal bounties on clipart requests
so companies or people could attach $$$ to requests and once filled, the
person gets $$$...the catch is that the images must go into the public
domain so we don't taint our ideals ;)

Another reason I'm keen to move over to ccHost for this is so that we
can track who, when, where, why, what and how someone is requesting
something and also so they can get notified easily when someone submits
a filled request.

What do you all think about these ideas?
