Ok - my main aim with the patch was to be able to see captions on the 3000+ 
or so of photos I have lying around, with those captions being in another 
database, not in the files. If I can find some time next week I'll look 
into making a small script to create EXIF headers for my own images, and 
rework the patch to grab the caption from the EXIF header if present.
