I've noticed is that one of the EXIF tags my existing software uses seems to have been removed
from imaging:

One of the recent changes was deduplication of TIFF tags, and grouping
of tags by specification.

Tag 0x0132 is defined in the TIFF6 specification, so it is now under
TiffTagConstants, and known as TIFF_TAG_DATE_TIME.

Also I am considering replacing the EXIF_ prefix with TIFF_ for all tags.
