Inkscape: A Vector Drawing Tool

Interface allowing a user to manage all their work from Inkscape, without dealing with the filesystem.

This blueprint has been superseded. See the newer blueprint "A gallery dialog/dock item for Inkscape" for updated plans.

I just requested a blueprint for something similar, and it got me thinking...

(Note: the similar blueprint is here: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/inkscape/+spec/inkscape-user-library)

One thing I appreciate about an application is when it manages my files for me. The most obvious "popular" example would be iTunes, with the "Keep music folder organized" option checked. (It is an imperfect comparison, I know—because the user edits file metadata rather than the music itself.)

A pretty well-articulated argument for this idea in general can be found here (under the paragraph beginning with "Front-end, toward a modern desktop"): http://projectfactory.sourceforge.net/whitepaper/paper.html
