If a MediaInfo items depicts something that has its own 'depicts' statements, add those to the search index too

For example - an photo of the Mona Lisa might have 'depicts'='Q12418' (the mona lisa), and no other depicts statements. The item for the Mona Lisa, however, itself has depicts statements.

Add those statements to the search index for the MediaInfo item

@CBogen Can you clarify the 'decline' here?

If the object of a photo is something like a painting or an engraving or a sculpture, then the design for the data assumed up until now is that the information what that painting or sculpture or engraving shows will be in an item on wikidata for the object, and usually /not/ in the Commons SDC.

So if we want a Commons search for cats to bring back not just snapshots of cats, but also paintings of cats, the assumption has been that that information from wikidata will have to get included into what is searched by Commons search too.

If this is not now to be the case, that is a *major* change of direction, and needs to be actively presented to the Commons SDC community -- it's a much bigger deal, one that the SDC editing community needs to know and understand about; not something to be just quietly closed here without any reference.

@Jheald closing this was a mistake, thanks for catching it. This is still something we'd like to do, though we're not sure when it will be prioritized.
