Just my 0.02?:

* I greatly appreciate the possibility to write IPTC tags - this is definitely a
very useful enhancement

* regarding the saving of information in images, however I would strongly to
make it configurable in a very fine grained way

* I for my person definitely want to have my name and copyright/copyleft written
into the image - this could even be an automatic action after downloading the images

* however I myself am not sure if I would really want to save all keywords into
all my images. Having them in the database is just fine for me, others will
decide differently. Having a choice however is one of the things that makes
linux and its applications so appealing for me

* the possibility to export/import parts of the image library should be seen
separately from the issue of writing information into the images. However I
regard this as a missing feature, together with the topic of having off-line
stored images remaining in the database. Calculating a md5-checksum of the image
information to identify files seems to be a logical step in this contect

Ok, now it's 0.05? ;-)
