A metadata plugin would be great - builing it directly into QGIS would
be even better! This is the kind of cross cutting functionality that
everybody wants and needs, and that would be great to be able to
access via the QGIS core API.  With it added to the api other plugin
writers coulld make good use of the metadata too. Of course that would
prbably mean doing your work in C++ - not sure if you are up for that.
