FS#163 - Attach EXIF data to previews and/or thumbs.

Some data may need to be scrubbed (eg embedded thumbnail/preview images and resolution) but the rest should be copied over.

Ideally we'd add another comment that points the viewer back to the image's URL.

We need to do this only for all non-thumbnail images.

0) Add user preference to control this!
1) Copy all tags over (exiftool -TagsFromFile original.file new.file)
2) Sanitize Orientation tag to be '0' (all processed images are correct)
3) Possibly add 'comment' field as appropriate containing the site's URL?

I think it should be:

* Optionally copy (+sanitize) over exif data. (non-thumbs only)
* Optionally add a few fields (eg copyright string + image URL at the very least. (all generated images)

Problems: Synchronizing thumbs/etc with any changes (eg copyright settings)

Heh. And we should use XMP tags for this, IMO.
