    I agree .. up to a point.

    My DSLR (Minolta 7Hi) is pretty sophisticated, but doesn't have
    the mercury switch (?) that would let it record the EXIF orientation.

    So any changes I make have to be done after the photo was taken.

Fair enough.  That's a different matter.  I'm talking about when
there's already an EXIF tag in the image; I don't want to lose that
information.
