   Does RAW store something like the EXIF data found in JPEGs?  If
   it's there I haven't found a way to get it out.

At least with the Canon Digital Rebel (and presumably other Canon
cameras), there are two ways of getting the EXIF data:

1) There is a file named crw_xxxx.thm stored next to each crw_xxxx.crw
   on the card.  This is a tiny JPEG with the EXIF information.  I
   then use

   jhead -nofinfo -te crw_xxxx.thm -ft crw_xxxx.jpg

   to copy the EXIF info from the thumbnail to the JPEG that I create.

2) The Canon RAW format stores a JPEG in the RAW file.  The Digital
   Rebel always stores a fine medium JPEG, but there's a firmware hack
   available on the net that allows you to change that (along with
   other goodies such as mirror lockup, flash exposure compensation,
   and more) as you can on the 10D.  Dave Coffin's web site also
   contains a tool called "parse" that extracts this stored JPEG.
