Exactly that's what I need it for and that's why I have created a simple 
extension a long time ago, that "hacked" this feature into TV

To be honest, I'd personally prefer a solution that allows versioning of 
all required meta-information. If you store e.g. the images in a DB 
record, developers will have to maintain them in all instances (dev 
site, test site, live site, ...).
I think, we should even have file based mapping rules (maybe TS...).

Saying that, I know, that TV is a huge project and such changes are 
probably very hard to incorporate.. Anyways, I'm just sharing my dreams ;)

I'll work on a patch as I'll definitely need this feature for an 
upcoming project.

Thanks again
