That would be great! It's easy to set the mtime of Photos that don't
have EXIF tags (think of my scanned old picture collection...), but not
that easy to set EXIF tags... 

Also, it would be nice to have F-Spot check if the files exist and
display the question mark icon in the thumbnail view (instead of in the
full view) to let the user decide whether to remove it from the library
or keep it (if it's a removable drive).

BTW, I really love F-Spot and use it for my 10000+ collection right
now! :-)
