Beagle and JPEG Comments

Yeah you might have guessed it ... I am using Beagle extensively to find stuff amoung my photos and PDF papers (I would also love to use it for KMail mails and source codes but due to lack of space all source code reside outside my home directory).

Anyway, I use digikam for digital photo management - it can do more or less all the basic stuff. I generally add comments to some of the images via digikam and I would like beagle to index the comments in the photos. Unfortunately beagle-0.0.9 doesnt do that. Hour long of investigation revealed that JPEG files can have comments in multiple places. Digikam adds comments as JPEG comments and Beagle used to index only the exif comments. Quick patch followed.
