I started doing something like this once, but got a little bogged down
when I tried to use the icon view. Anyway, I think one thing would be
nice is the ability to extract the magic strings from jpegs that digital
cameras embed. This information can be extracted with a variety of
programs -- jhead is one that comes to mind. Additionally, a way to
orient pictures would be useful.
While we're somewhat on the topic -- I vaguely recall that there was a
gphoto based vfs. Is that still around? Does anyone know anything
