This is what I plan to use for libopenraw.

TIFF is part of the Exif spec. That was a big problem with libexif IMHO
that I'm trying to address.
BTW, CRW is not TIFF but CIFF :-/ and that makes a difference.
Otherwise there are few programs using Exiv2 that copy Nikon NEF

for that purpose after processing some NEF with ufraw.
