In the project at savannah "adding images" is listed as an item. So this is 
going to come, probably (at least I see it that way) together with the 
release of the new bothrops query engine.

Yes, I think this is the best thing to use. This will allow you to run 
queries on the whole collection with a given item. The item SHOULD be in the 
collection, otherwise it will extract/reextract features, which has to do 
with security problems you get when adding new images to the database. There 
is no rights administration in any of the GIFT's query engines so far, and I 
did not want to do a 'bricole' (very french word for designing a quick fix 
for non-francophone bystanders :-) ).
