I wasn't aware of this dependency, and I do not find libexif inside the 
Windows installation of mono.

Anyway I will check for runtime and existance of exiflib and implement a 
special handling for "mono with exiflib". The System.Drawing solution 
maybe slow sometimes, but is always a safe fallback.
