Ah, yes, I remember having read something about that at some point. What's in
these makernotes?

Anyway, my main interest in getting XMP sidecar support (yes, I'm perhaps
selfish) is to make it easy to share metadata with Bibble 5 (both ways), so the
makernotes are of less importance to me.

I do realize that a perfect solution from the start would be the best, but
maybe I could first get reading and writing XMP sidecar files supported from a
menu command, and then we can see where we want to go from there?

I'm not sure where in digiKam to start coding, though...
