[Digikam-users] Import fails to convert IPTC keywords to tags

currently the IPTC keywords are only read from pictures that are newly 
imported into the database. That is, if your pictures were already in the db, 
there is currently the tool missing to do some batch operations reading 
metadata into the db. 

Workaround: Remove pictures, start digikam, close digikam, move back, start 
digikam. Disadvantage: comments, tags, rating from db is lost for these 

The other direction, db->metadata, works currently in the way that if you 
change tags (preferably with the right side bar, there is a bug for this), 
and the relevant configuration option is set, the tags are written to IPTC.
