Chris -- good feedback. Some comments below.

is what most folks really needd. The difference is the inclusion
of a database like your Jet engine, allowing users to add a title,
description, date, etc.

You can actually get a poor man's implementation of this by doing the following. Put your folder in "View by details". Then right click on the heading bar, that will give you a list of all the fields you can put into the view. In this list are comments, title, author, date created, camera model, etc. Then turn on "show in groups" in the "Arrange icons by" menu, and then select which field you want to group by. The drawback here is that, of course, thumbnail viewing is not supported in details view.

) An "auto layout" option would be nice when sending multiple
odd-sized prints to an attached printer. That way, a user could
just say "print this directory" or "print this album".

What would you expect the printout to be with these odd sizes? Also, what is your definition of an odd-sized print?
