[PyKDE] EXIF tool recommendation?

Hi all,

I am writing a PyKde application that needs to know about EXIF data in
image files.  I am currently using EXIF.py
which has not been maintained in almost 3 years and does not meet my needs.

I want to use a more up-to-date EXIF program, such as exiv2 or
exiftool.  Neither of these are native python :-(.  So, I'm looking for
recommendations on how to proceed. 

- Is there a good, well-maintained, python-based EXIF reader out there?
- If not, what is the best way to use the external tools such as
exiftool?  I know I can run an external program and parse its output,
but I'd prefer to not have to be at the mercy of printed output...

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
