I don't think it matters whether one uses exiftran, jpegtran or gthumb
to do the lossless JFIF rotation. Being explicitly told by the software
that the action is lossless, I don't see a reason why to tilt my head
every time I want to browse my photos or keep duplicates just because of

Unless I'm being told untruth about the losslessness (soundss great,
doesn't it?), the metaphor of not messing around with negatives isn't
