Agree this will never be perfect. It will be up to the client app (and
user) to figure out if the image is really related or not. It's still
a lot better than forcing the user of the photo manager to manually
find the file and create the link.

I guess, but does that allow hooking into gimp events? (my experience
with scripting gimp is limited to very straightforward stuff)
For my purposes, I'd really like to see client notifications.
