           Summary: Ability to display meta-info about a datasource
           Product: kst
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kst kde org
        ReportedBy: matt truch net

Version:           1.2.0_svn_502068 (using KDE KDE 3.5.0)
OS:                Linux

Some datasources contain various meta-info about the data in question.  It would be convienient if kst, at the very least, had the ability to display this info in a dialog box.  Even better, if some of it would be available in variables (numbers and/or strings).  

The prime example is the FITS file format.  Each FITS image has many parameters and comments/history about the image contained in the header of the FITS file.  It would be very useful to be able to display this info.
