Yeah, the little k is easy to miss... But I think in this case I have double
checked: KExiv2::load and save use instances of Exiv2::Image obtained from
Exiv2::ImageFactory::open(filename) for reading and writing. This is why it
seems to me that it will also read and write XMP sidecar files. Have you
experienced that this is not the case?

I think you're absolutely right about many different workflows with different
uses of XMP sidecars. This should definitely be checked somehow with users.

As I understand XMP, everything in EXIF and IPTC can be put in XMP, using the
corresponding namespaces. So this may not be a problem after all. But, as you
say, metadata can be found both in the image file itself, and in an
accompanying XMP sidecar file.

This is one reason to first implement a menu command solution, like the one I
suggested in method 2), above.
