You could do that with the object (already possible with the widget, see
the nautilus properties window), but a separate dedicated library is a
better idea IMO, and I would probably want to use it for my other
projects (qahog in particular).

Furthermore, I don't think that metadata writing/updating really has its
place in the VideoObject/Widget. This is the other part of monkey-media
that we'd need to replace/move/update.

Thomas, what's your take on this part?
