Update image location

Bug Description

It would be nice if you guys made it easier to update
an imported image. You see...I imported an image a long
time ago and then decided to organise my folders...I
moved that image because I needed it somewhere else. It
turns out that I ended up with a "broken image". To be
exact a couple hundred broken images...Can you make it
so that I could simple right click on a "broken image"
and then be able to update the path for all the images
that are in selection? :(

Suggestion: interupt loading and ask user to specify location of missing
image(s) or
directory where all other missing links should point to.

In addition... It would be very nice having "Update image" under RMB click
menu when
click occurred on picture. Useful when image is being updated externally.
inkscape should figure out when image has been changed and update it

Changed in inkscape:
importance: Undecided → Wishlist
status: New → Confirmed

This is partially fixed in 9143 by defaulting to embedding, but better handling of broken image links is needed anyway.
