That's actually just for adding tags (faces found by my face-detection
and identification suit, ) to digikam
(and could be improved some, to become even more compatible to
digikam's inbuild face detection, which I found lacking --- but then,
I'm biased :-)

While I do not actively know about such software, I would suspect that
many will do this is not only the file, but the entire directory is
missing (that certainly is the default for f_spot_cleanup), so you
could try that; alternatively, it is quite possible that there are
programs out there which only validate the database when asked to do
so, and those might work too (also that would be a bit risky)...
