It's interesting to note that over the years, I've come to make my finder folder match my bins exactly. I don't do subclips. Not never, but hardly ever. But if I did I'd make a folder in legacy that says sub clips, and then have sub folders under that so they stand out as something different.

Drives me a little batty when someone gives me a project with everything organized by scenes, but there's no master folders matching up with the folders on the hard drive. Makes it a little difficult to ascertain if everything has been imported.

Now in X, now matter what you drag in and where, it only allows one instance of the clip. Yes it can appear in multiple keyword collections, but there is only one instance. Drag it again it just replaces.

Jeremy pointed out recently that if a clip is offline, you can just drag it in again (with option?) and it relinks. None of the crazy relinking dialog necessary. About time!
