respect metadata patch
This was originally discussed 4 years ago:
The thumbnailer should always respect orientation tags, and should try to respect other metadata. Patch attached.
This looks fine to me. Can you maybe post again your old mail to xdg to see if there's any objection (I don't expect any)? And then I'll commit after a week.
I've emailed the list, with this patch and the unreadable-image patch (bug 49799).
No comments were made in response to the RFC on the mailing list, so I guess that counts as unanimous support.
