I understand that. However, my use of this image for thumbnailing is on 
a project which does image manipulation on the command line so it would 
be interesting if, when creating the thumbnail, the exif would be kept, 
and then I would just update the size using ffi to exif lib. On the 
other hand, once the exif lib bindings are finished I can copy them to 
the thumb anyway.

Yes, using the bindings to imagemagick sounds like a neat idea. Thanks.
