Image/Graphics::Magick Perl bindings don't have EXIF

Just discovered today that the Perl bindings for Image/Graphics::Magick reject
attempts to get EXIF attributes as invalid - the code in Magick.xs simply
doesn't even attempt to recognise them. (It's also implemented in a rather,
erm, funky manner. How long ago was this stuff written?)

What's the maintenance on these two projects like now-a-days?

Should we look about for a new general-purpose image-handling library that has
decent Perl bindings?

I'll try and get a patch out for I/G::Magick when I get back from holiday
