Well, it would not be hard to extract the date and set it automatically in 
this case. Perhaps, we could introduce some option for this, like "For file 
type .mpg, check if the filename matches /some_regular_expression/ and then 
set the date according to this if the filename matches the scheme.

You want it to happen automagically, right?! Not some button in the annotation 
dialog like "get the date from the filename" or so?

Probably not too hard to implement. If I'll ever have some spare hours again 
(new house, the garden still to do, a toddler and a baby ;-), I'll try to 
implement it.

After all not a bad idea!

Cheers, Tobias
