Yes - jumping the gun here...

the new photo:saveMetadata() and photo:readMetadata() functions (@Lr5.0 undocumented and unreleased) are very welcome and useful - thank you.

However they are slow as molasses if multiple photos need metadata saved/read - we need a batch version.

Sorry if premature, but I was hoping to tip the odds for SDK @5.1.

Also, it would be good if readMetadata() had an option to suppress popping up the confirmation dialog to the user.
