The file plug-ins could as well use the functions via the PDB then.
What's the benefit of linking to them?

I am somewhat reluctant to see such code in the core, or the core

perfect and can crash. I wouldn't want to see the core crash because
some camera manufacturer made a mistake and the camera creates images
with corrupt metadata.
