It might be good to have this as an option, though, if it's practicable.

Me: I'd rather have the data in the image file - that way I only lose the data 
if I lose the picture file (by which time it's too late to matter!).  

That doesn't stop the data also being in a sqlite database for speed and ease 
of access, but it does mean the loss of the database doesn't involve the loss 
of all my additional information.   (It would also then need a function to 
re-read the image files and recreate the database in case of disaster).
