exiv2 tool: It should be possible to insert newlines in text strings.
Some people want line breaks in their strings. While it shouldn't be a problem with the C++ API, it is apparently not possible to do this with the exiv2 command line tool.
There was another similar request for this in JPEG comments once.

On Linux in a bash shell, this works:
ahuggel@mowgli> exiv2 -v -M 'set Exif.Image.Model Yet another fancy > Olympus camera' IMAGE.JPG
i.e., just hitting return inside a quoted string (single or double
quotes) and continuing on the next line.
