i had a look at the openclipart2 content and at how scribus is managing collections.

- openclipart2 is simply a directory filled of subdirectories with PNGs and/or SVGs
- scribus can't mass import a directory as a collection
- scribus can't point to a directory and use it as a collection
- scribus image collections files (SIC) have absolute paths pointing to the images
- SIC files are simple xml files

i see several ways to implement an openclipart (and generally speaking an external cliparts):
- create a script that can read a directory and create a SIC file listing all the image files in that directory.
- add a mass import button to the picture browser.
- extend the SIC file format to allow pointing to directories instead of list of files.
- distribute SIC files pointing to the openclipart pictures (like libreoffice is doing)

personally, i would go for the script...
