I know we can associate arbitrary metadata to files. I'd like to be able to sync remote specific metadata (say ip = fields around. I was originally thinking of shoving this in the description but I am not sure that (a) it gets synced around and (b) it will scale well enough.

Then I thought we could use the key/value storage, but then the keyname would change with metadata changes so maybe that won't work...? Another option I thought of was to just throw stuff in a separate directory in the git-annex branch.

Thoughts? --anarcat
