When run for sets backup of photos, all the photos are placed in folder format folders like /2011/08/03, etc which isn't good at all for organization! I need the ability to back up to the set idenitication # so everything is the same as it is on flickr sets. Sets should be called the full # like "57627351269986" like older versions of offickr!

keep in mind that the -S command doesn't back up my photos! It just says "no photo to backup"

Older versions of Offlickr didn't group photos by sets, but had another organization purely based on the photo id. The problem with organizing photos by sets is that some photos may not be part of any set, while others may be part of several sets.

One way this could be accomplished at the filesystem level could be using symbolic links. However, that's going to require some additional code as we'll need information about the photo to locate it on disk. Let me record this as a to-do and think about it.

My photos appear only appear in 1 set each and every photo belongs to a set. I really like how I have things organized on flickr, and it would be awesome to maintain this same organization on my backup server. Thank you!
