Jostein, do you also happen to know where LR2 stores the keywords it 
knows, as I'd like to play with it some having read your story below?

>           Pigs

>      Livestock
>           Pigs
>                 {Swines}
>           Horses
>                 {Equines}

> "equines" is now a synonym for Horses, meaning that when assigning
> "Horses" to an image, it also becomes searchable for the synonym.
