I used to manage my photos using a program called JBrout that does
write tags to the actual JPEG files directly. I also use unison to
synchronize my photos to a central location. My observation is that
synchronizing changed tags was always quite quick. I assume that
changing the tags only alter a very small portion of the file. So,
since unison uses the rsync algorithm, it will only transfer these
changes and not the entire file.
