Hi Steve, I hope I am quoting you correctly by only reporting the

The ability to directly edit graphics within a LyX file would be a nice
As far as I can understand the feature I am talking about does not
require _editing_ graphics. It just requires an option (which can be set
as default as well) to copy any graphics the user pastes or links into a
hidden folder that is managed LyX. Documents at that point become "LyX
archives" made of a "myfile.lyx" and a ".stuff_for_myfile" folder,
nicely archived into a single thing, that you may call a .LyXar (archive
file). You have a script for .lyx file, you can still use it on all .lyx
files and you can use it as well for .LyXar because all you need to do
is unzip the file, work on the .lyx, and zip it again ...
You went a long way in your message, partly, I presume, on the idea of
_editing_ graphics in LyX, but this is not what I was talking about. Let
me know if I have misunderstood your words ...
