(BTW, a recent c't article showed a windows program doing content-based image 
search -- it had a builtin-in drawing program (a basic one I guess), so you 
could draw, what you were looking for).

Right. You just right-click on an image file in konqueror and select "Search 
for similar images" in the contextmenu.

PS: Wolfgang, while working on the uni-project, we noticed that we really 
need an intelligent history (or you might even call it integrated knowledge 
management) -- having that in KDE3 would be really awesome. Is there some 
other feature extraction engine available besides for images btw? I.e. PDF 
and other document formats interest me most, right now :)

By the end of this month, I should have some time for kmrml hacking,
