If the GeoTIFF format is just TIFF with some specialized tags, it should be 
just a case of enhancing the existing TIFF load/save routines instead of 
adding a new plug-in.

When the TIFF loader is reading a GeoTIFF file, the tags could be converted in 
to image parasites. When the file is re-saved, the parasites could be 
converted back to tags as the file is

The possibility of doing this will depend in part in how easy/hard it is to 
recognize a GeoTIFF file vs. an ordinary TIFF file.
