That's not possible (at least, not the way you did it). F-spot
references all files by their full paths (there is no easy other,
as perhaps by filename only; some cameras wrap their filenames after
1000 images, some people use multiple cameras using the same naming
scheme, and so on).

inode numbers might be useful as an alternative (as well as obviously useful for finding duplicates that are hard links of each other or duplicates that result from symlink weirdness). Really, I just wish that the filesystem contained a mapping of sha1_hash=>filename so that F-spot could just ask, "Hey, where'd the file with sha1_hash xxx go?" and get a proper answer.

Maybe this is something that the desktop search programs can help with?
