On 0.8.0, you have a tool to search image using EXIF comments. You want 
certainly seach and image using others metadata like camera model, exposure 
time, GPS info, etc. 

Search image tool can be improved in the future (later 0.9.0 issue) using new 
Digikam::DImg API in core witch manage image data and metada from JPG, TIFF, 
PNG, etc. But we need to finalize/stabilize/Polish this API before to change 
anything in search tools.

For this point. I had implemented this feature in 0.9.0 unstable (trunk in 
svn). You can open all images from a folder at the same time using GUI. But 
we need to add any others implementations :

- one command line option to open all images from on folder using a script.
- make a showfoto DCOP interface.

Any contributors welcome. These tasks aren't very complicated to do, but i'm 
very busy on others important digiKam parts.
