My wife shared your love of iPhoto until it deleted all of her photos
when she upgraded to a newer version.  Yeah, she was a bit miffed about
that.  She lost several hundred photos that hadn't been backed up.  She
uses Adobe Bridge mostly now.

Do I have a point?  Not really.  I guess just be careful with any of
those programs that claim control over your existing files like iPhoto
does.
