[Digikam-users] Making sure not to lose comments and other metadata

I've got a fair number of JPG photos in a digikam album that I want to 
start making comments on. However I'm not sure where these comments are 
stored, and how easy they are to lose when moving photos to different 
computers etc. Most of the photos appear to have EXIF metdata created by 
the camera.

So my questions are: Is EXIF a supported enough format that I should 
keep the photos like that, or is there a way to convert the metadata to 
XPM? Can I have comments stored in both the digikam database and in the 
EXIF metadata on the JPG files?
