Absolutely. I'm well aware of the existence of metadata in image 
formats. It's just that FFmpeg presently doesn't care about any image 
metadata (at least, not that I can find through libavformat/img2.c).

How could it handle metadata? The present image handling system seems to 
be geared toward processing large numbers of sequentially numbered 
images. In such a case, would metadata be concatenated? Unionized?
