What Rinus means is if you write your tag inside your pictures files  
(embedded in their), you don't need specifically to be able to read your  
old database.

You just can start from scratch and digikam scans the embedded metadatas  
and recreates the database from this.

For this you have to write the metadata in your pictures (it's mentioned  
as experimental for RAW files but it can work anyway depending of which  
kind of RAW files you use)
