There's no mechanism to do this automatically - however, there are some

Basically you need to write a script that creates for every file
foo.jpg, a file called foo.jpg.xmp - the contents should look like this:
<x:xmpmeta xmlns:x='adobe:ns:meta/' x:xmptk='XMP toolkit 3.0-28,
Then with my patch, when you do the import, the tags will be created (if
necessary), and attached to each photo appropriately.
Hope this helps.
Great work, Warren. Could you please explain the XML in a bit more
detail? Specifically, I'd need to add tags for Keywords, People,
Caption/Title, Description/Comments, and Places. Just as an example,
how would the XML appear for a photo with:
Keywords "key1" and "key2"
People "person1", "person2", "person3"
Caption "This is the Caption"
Description "A short description."
If I can see that, then I'm pretty sure that I can figure out the
rest. Also, how do I patch F-spot? I am not a developer, and I've no
experience in the matter. Thank you.
