I'm looking through that code and although the code itself
is a bit of a mess, it works very well.

Only real issue left given that is to extract the exif info
from the CRW and JPG files ... preferably in Python.

I've found a number of generic scripts for extracting exif
information from jpeg images, but none of them support the
Canon / 10D tags.  I've been able to find a few references
for the D30 and D60 tags which are similar, but no 10D
listing yet.
