this is an official feature in 1.5.0svn (that is, you have an entry in
the context menu that makes an image included in the .sla)
imo, a "bad feature"*, but nonetheless a feature!
* trying to avoid the usual shitstorm: getting the image to follow the
.sla is a good idea, but including the image in the xml is imo a bad
implementation of that idea.
