I don't know how specifically PLT-friendly it is, but Adobe's XMP  
library[1] is concerned with at least adding metadata.  Its metadata- 
extraction capabilities might be more concerned with extracting the  
metadata it put in, but it might be worth a look nonetheless, if  
there's a parser in there or nearby.  I also don't know how  
encumbered it is.

All the best,
