  Sounds like an interesting feature...seems to me that a more robust
solution would be to define a command that would receive the new
metadata string(s) on its stdin.  Then you could do whatever you
wanted with it (including keeping a history of arbitrary and
configurable length, of course).

  John  ! Since this email isn't signed, you can't really tell it's from
 Buttery! me; I'll hopefully have my computer working normally again
www.io.c! soon, but until then...gotta love catastrophic drive failure.
om/~john! Mmm, rdiff-backup...
