exif/iptc/xmp image metadata libraries?

    I'm looking for an image metadata manipulation library, and so far I've
    only found a couple that look usable. ruby-exiv2 uses the C++ exiv2
    library, but is incomplete (no xmp support, doesn't seem to handle
    multiple iptc keywords. mini-exiftool uses the excellent exiftool library,
    but that's written in Perl, and I'd rather use something that's either
    pure-ruby, or a C/C++ library for efficiency.

    Does anyone know of any mature image metadata manipulation libraries that
    I've missed?

    EXIFR, which is pointed to in the above link, is EXIF only. I'm looking
    for something that does IPTC and XMP.
