Curious - will that be optional or enforced?  i.e. when I add a photo it
is basically enforced - there is no way to import a photo into the sla
file its self.  When I add a text document I might do that using import,
or by cut'n'paste or by free typing.

The reason I ask is if I share those files back - they would need to (a)
all be there (b) be named logically.  If I import a document then the
naming could follow, But cut'n'paste or free type would likely just be
named Text1234 - which means expecting someone to make edits on the file
is tricky...
