Cocoon's TraversableGenerator and image metadata

I've been doing some Java programming lately to extend Cocoon's TraversableGenerator . I have made a MetadataTraversableGenerator that adds image metadata to the existing output. I use the Java metadata-extractor library written by Drew Noakes. It includes classes to read Exif and Camera-specific maker notes from JPEG images.

This new approach allows me to sort my pictures on actual creation date (instead of the change date of the file on the filesystem).

At the same time I'm cleaning up my pictures section a little bit. I haven't had time yet to add all old images but I'll try to do that the next couple of days/weeks.
