Whither the images for Tellico?

There's some discussion on the Tellico mailing list about the change from saving images inside the Tellico data file to a data directory inside the application's .kde/ hierarchy. I probably shouldn't have changed the default behavior, since that violated the principle of least surprise. It's easy enough to switch back, fortunately.

Going forward, I think the best thing to do is to add a config option, defaulting to the old way. Then when folks ask about performance, I can point out that setting. Tellico's sluggishness in loading and saving data files when many images are included is the #1 issue that people email me about, believe me.

I just hope that's discoverable. I've thought about showing a message box, just once, asking the user which behavior they prefer. That would make the feature at least a bit more visible...
