Hello Brecht,

thanx for your reply, all the coming stuff sounds great.

Right, forget to delete this old comments.

Bad but can understand the problem. Nothing is perfect ;)

Sometimes when using materials in the button window and have the UV 
image editor open and using UV Face select i wish a short way deleting 
UV coords. May not X key

Cool Thanx!

My idea was that uv coords belong to the IM name not to the name of the 
image itself. But if there will be another way cool!

With repeating i was thinking in the way of tiling a texture
like the "scale" option of X3D standard:
