I am also interested in the potential for extensions to the Shotwell database.
Doing a dump of photo.db and importing into my db gets me started, but
keeping mine up to date with changes to photo.db gets tricky.
How about a Shotwell option which would maintain a persistent journal of changes
to the db, it would simplify keeping my db in sync with photo.db.
