Jeff,

I've looked at a lot of these libraries for UpLib.  Hachoir may come
closest to what you want.  For UpLib, I wound up using these:

* hachoir (and a tiny bit of pyglet) for video,
* mutagen for ID3 tags in music,
* vobject for iCalendar/vCard,
* PIL for EXIF data in TIFF and JPEG files.

All of my source code for this is available at http://uplib.parc.com/.

Bill
