Yes, the problem is a) ccHost does not interact with metadata inside the 
SVG files in any way (read or write) and b) the directory structure is 
oriented by user names, not categories.

In past releases we used a directory structure for categories and the 
direct result of this was *a lot* of duplicates, generated by images 
being part of multiple categories.

The only way to to this is to patch ccHost.
