Jesper, Don't EVER think you owe me anything.  I think it would be nice 
to have, but not for future users.  Don't break KimDaBa for this 
feature.  It's really (in the long run) not worth it.

In retrospect, I could scrape index.xml for the dates, get the EXIF 
dates with metacam or ImageMagick, "whoop a little" search and replace 
on it and be "done before desert."

If I write a perl+ImageMagick (I don't use PerlMagick because it's a 
pain to install, and ImageMagick and Perl come with most every Linux 
Distro) tool, I'll send it back to you, if I don't feel it's too dangerous.
