I've been trading e-mails with Balint, and I am looking forward to the bulk update interface. I ended up coding up a few hack-ish things to get me by in the mean time though... but I'm also comfortable with SQL, so I do even more directly to the database...
As far as bulk uploads.. I feel your pain. It took me nearly three weeks to get all of mine uploaded in roughly 100 meg batches. Of course if I hadn't cared about things like setting the location and whatnot, it would have gone faster. That lack of a bulk update feature, ya see...
But I couldn't wait for the next release. I was already four months behind getting stuff posted (I was using BINS, and it just couldn't scale.. so I'd need an image management app to manage BINS..) so I fired up emacs and started hacking on the PO codebase.
Balint's accepted the majority of my patches, though he hasn't got back to me yet on the last one. (http://www.shaftnet.org/po/ if you want to see what I've done so far)
