There's got to be a better way to sync iPhone photos!

So I ponied up and got an iPhone last week after holding out for a year and a half. I'm head-over-heels in love with this thing! However, as is want to happen in relationships, there is usually one or two glaring flaws that emerge after some time spent together. I've found my one big gripe (so far) with the iPhone; photo syncing.

I set up iTunes to sync with a folder on my PC thinking it would actually, you know, sync the folders. But that was not to be. For some reason they thought it would be a good idea to copy the PC folders with pictures to the iPhone in similarly named folders, as well as copy all pictures to another folder called "Photo Library". As far as getting pictures from the phone to my PC, I'm stuck with the Windows Camera and Fax Wizard, or whatever the f' it's called. Apparently iTunes wants no part of this. This is no small source of grief for me since I had envisioned having a seperate folders for contact pics, wallpaper, camera pics, etc. (the Wizard just grabs everything, renames it, and throws it in a folder).
So, my question... Is there any software (free, ideally) that actually syncs (as in, mirrors the folders on each side) photos between my iPhone and my PC?
p.s. I'm running WinXP Pro, so no iPhoto suggestions.
