Lightroom: Managing geotags (for privacy)

It would be nice if we can manage geotags easily. Eye-fi and many new cameras support geotags. They are useful, but can be a privacy risk. Currently, it is very difficult to identify/remove unwanted geotags. This could be an issue when we want to share photos online. We want to indicate locations for certain photos, but we NEVER want to do so for certain photos.
It would be great if we can search photos with a certain range of geotags and delete them without affecting other metadata.

That's already in there as one of the preferences/export options, and is on by default:

Thanks Jeffrey. I was talking about Lightroom 3.6. I guess you are talking about 4.0.
Nice job! I haven't tried 4.0 yet.
