Right now, the only way to edit TIFF comments is using the GUI displayed using 'tiffcomment -edit file.tiff'. It would be nice if we could do something like:

tiffcomment -set "new comment!" file.tiff


tiffcomment -set comment.xml file.tiff


tiffcomment -set file.tiff

and then enter the comment via stdin.
