More Flickr importing

I’m still importing Flickr photos. Nearly done! It’s great watching the import coming in and seeing all the duplicates being found (and not imported twice). It’s one of the most annoying things about Flickr, that they let you upload the exact file twice and provide no API access to determine if something already exists. I’ve attempted to hack something together with checksum:sha1=blah machine tags, but the tag search system has some great annoyances (mostly lag, I think) that makes this less than great. It’ll be nice to not have to deal with any of that in the future.
