If you want to, you can:

	           +---Project X + (all text sources)
	           |             |
	           |             +--- Project X graphics files
	           +---Project Y + (all text sources)
	           |             |
	           |             +--- Project Y graphics files
	           +---all purpose graphics dump site

Another way is using project names as prefix to the image files.

I hope that some day users will become as intelligent as their  
computers (and find things inside a cache haystack without burning it
