VCS write metadata in image #1000
It would be very useful to have a capability to write metadata into an image file. Most image file formats support this.
We need to start with an API in VCS. I think that all metadata could be expressed as strings. So on input to VCS, the metadata could be expressed as a dictionary of attribute_name:value_string pairs.
The file formats which would be most useful to the ACME project are png (for raster graphics) and svg (for vector graphics).
