When an admin logs in now, in the quick stats box, they will now see the
total of unchecked images, the total of images needing cleanup and the total
number of images needing review due to possible PD issues....

There are links in the text too that now make it easier to go straight to
the list of these items...

Ive been meaning to do this for a while now, thanks for the kick in the
pants molumen...


Also regarding the "Machovka problem" thanks very much for talking to them
for us, and resolving that...

Also, a big congrats on winning the inkscape about screen comp... 

Go team openclipartlibrary...
