We didn't consider having a plugin to expose EXIF content, but indeed
sounds very interesting.

Of course, we are always opened to any kind of contribution, so any
patch will be very welcomed. :)

Personally, I would prefer to put it in a separated plugin, so
local-metadata do not require new dependencies. We would be happy to
incorporate it in our plugin set, and also to help you in anything.

If that is too much work, or you already have patches for local-metadata
plugin, I'm fine with adding that feature in that plugin. We can split
it later if needed.
