As this conflicts directly with my dislike to copy & paste instead of
using common libraries, I won't do that. See, libexif is needed by
gphoto2, a command-line frontend to libgphoto2. And libexif-gtk is used
by gtkam, a GTK frontend to libgphoto2. I hope that libexif will be used
by other exif tools, especially command-line tools. I am not willing to
keep several libexif versions together or to answer for incompabilities
among those. Perhaps someone else...

libexif-gtk is an EXIF editor. If someone wants to write a gimp-parasite
editor, this is ok. But I'd still like to give users the possibility to
access/edit all EXIF data, because a gimp-parasite editor will never be
able to cover all EXIF tags. Just think of MakerNote the contents of
which vary from manufacturer to manufacturer.
