[Wish] Write support for Canon RAW CR2 files
Wish: It will be nice to have Canon RAW CR2 files (TIFF based) write support in Exiv2. I own Canon EOS DSLR camera and work using digiKam (which use exiv2) with those CR2 files and it is very uncomfortable when I haven't got possibility to write tags, geolocation and other metadata into files. I must use other tools, such as ExifTool.
#635: Identified image tags in CR2 images (just enough to maintain the TIFF structure, not sufficient for dcraw to still read the image)

I will like to see this feature as well, mostly for Rusell's reasoning as it will CR2 file first class citizens in digiKam, as there is no way (currently) to use exiftools with digiKam for CR2 write support. I hope it gets into 0.22 and will not be bumped again to next version ;)

I've added some experimental code to write to CR2 images, finally. Ufraw (i.e., dcraw) can still open a modified image and the OSX image viewer still shows the image (not sure if that's only a preview though), other than that I've not tested it, in particular I do not have any Windows or Canon software to check.
Please check-out the latest trunk version to test and report your success back here. Do make sure you have a backup of any images you test with!
