Summary0002064: Links to source media are absolute, not relative
DescriptionIt seems that in kdenlive projects, links to the source media (i.e. video and audio clips used in the project) are stored by absolute rather than relative path. This has the effect that whenever a directory containing the project file itself plus the source media files is moved to a new location (or renamed), kdenlive won't find those files when the project is started up next time.

It would be highly desirable for the media links to be stored by relative path, such that projects not using any media files from *outside* the project's directory hierarchy can easily be archived to other locations. This is standard in most professional audio and video editing packages.
Steps To Reproduce* Create a new kdenlive project in a test directory
* Put one example clip into the same directory (or a subdir in that directory)
* Open the kdenlive project and import that clip into the project. Save and close the project
* Rename the test directory or move it to a different location
* Open the kdenlive project from that new location
