Hi Jonathan,

Two reasons:

1) IMHO, people who want to use Pictureflow are also likely to want to use
the database - it offers a faster way to get to a particular selection and
sometimes you want to do random stuff or select by year etc. If anything,
I'd *guess* that Pictureflow addicts are less likely to use the file browser
(think iTunes filenames), not that I'd want to see that removed either.

2) Putting it in the root might preclude the more flexible use of the
database I mentioned, and it's may be confusing to have one thing in
multiple places in the UI. I'd rather aim to get the database integration
improved and stick it in there for now.

Assuming we're ok with customisable menus, a root menu entry straight into
the plugin may be achieved that way...
