heh, after looking at comments, it appears that it didn't work out too 
well last time you tried :P

I am using the PHP JPEG metadata toolkit to handle XMP, and it pretty 
much does the job, but the code is hideous, most functions output html 
when they don't like something, the author felt an urge to reinvent UTF8 
escaping (all escaping, actually), so rewriting that is high on my 
priority list, if I only could find a few days of feeling like working 
to get it started...

At f-spot.org they say _reading_ xmp and IPTC data is planned and is to 
be included really soon; they say nothing about writing, but I have to 
check the source code. What I was more interested in was the RPC 
protocols they use for publishing to flickr and the like; I'll check to 
see if the gallery remote service from gallery2 can be hacked to work 
stand-alone, or I would need to write the whole implementation from scratch.

moria ~ # emerge -p f-spot
