I do wont to integrate downloader to solang, probably i'll start to make
separate one. What i mean, i wont to provide taging and relation
information for some photos. But this will be useless if nobody will use
it ;)

it should be only one part of downloader, but currently this is one
independent programm. Usage is simple:
./walker /media/digicam
it will walk true directory tree and look for image, video or audio
files. Then it will check if the file pattern is know. If not it will
put it to direkt output. If know it will putt it to the buffer check
what kind of group is it, (panoram, interval or audio comment) and tag
it and put out.
Current output is the console, it will print file names with number.
Each number is a tag.
