If any super brain has the time or inclination to figure this out it 
would be very useful.  Parse and poke the IPTC data in headers for 
photos... Scott Raney says:

"I'll add it to the feature-request list, but it should be
straightforward to write a script to do this.  Just open the file for
binary read, read the header, and then decode it.  You'll probably
need to use the binaryDecode function to convert the bits and bytes in
the header to a form you can use.  It's not hard to do, but can be
tedious and you really need to know your way around a binary file
editor/viewer so that you can check your script to make sure it's
dealing with the right data as it parses through the header.
