It seems that extracting IPTC data is not as complicated as I thought, so if 
there is a demonstrated need for it, we may enable it.

Thumblist was meant to be a '''simple''' gallery, designed to display one or 
many thumbnails on one wiki page, linking to the original pictures. All other 
features (templates, trails, page variables) are additional, optional or 
occasional, and it may be difficult or tricky to use them all the time.

I would suggest looking at the excellent Cookbook:WikiGallery [1], which is 
designed to have one wiki page per picture, where you could hold all data, 
description and comments, and use the page data in pagelists, searches etc.
