I was reluctant to add what would be needed for a preview because it would
have broken compatibility with some of the software I was using.

They went and broke compatibility anyway for other reasons.

I am reasonably sure they have a Perl script to add the necessary
information to allow a preview but they do not seem to have gotten around
to it last time I checked (I do not do perl.  I've moved on from
OpenClipart.org and didn't plan on making any further changes to the files
I had submitted, the other files I submitted are probably still in the
queue awaiting processing).

(Freedestkop.org has been having problems and they host the OpenClipart
website.)  I cannot fix the openclipart.org website, as I do not have CVS
access.  I'll try and bring it to the attention of the admins but I'm not
very closely involved in the project.  I just happened to join up early on
and contribute some a few hundred gradients and patterns when the library
was only small, and I haven't looked at the project it in months even
though I do still think it is a very worthwhile project.

I could to see about getting the gradients updated to include the
information needed for previews, but I'm not making any promises (I might
get it done over christmas).

Do not fix the registry on my account.
The registry is nice to have but I dont need it very often.

I had not seen the breakage mentioned and thought you might not already be
aware of it or that I might be doing something wrong.  I decided to
ask about it first rather than filing a bug report, I can still file a bug
report if you want
