[Shotwell] metadata exporting RAW

thanks for your Christmas-Release, I really enjoy the new version and
its advantages. Especially great (I didn'Ät expect that) is the
auto-import feature if I develop RAW images and export jpegs with
another editor/DAM than Shotwell - automatically added. Great.
But I'm wondering: after enabling the "write metadata to files" option,
I get all my tags written into the jpegs - that works great. But what
happens to tags assigned to RAW files?
Mostly, those files get a XMP sidecar file and aren't touched at all
(only read access). Does Shotwell write tags in XMP files? If not, it
would be great do ad this as a feature - write them that others can
access and read them as well so that one gets a unified ta handling in
the whole photo workflow process.
I attached a sample xmp-file used by darktable (http://darktable.sf.net)
including three different tags: "Stockholm", "Portrait" and "Gamla Stan"
I created a ticket for this too (see http://trac.yorba.org/ticket/3035)
but I thought maybe this is something for discussion.
