Actually, since SVG::Metadata *only* parses and extracts the metadata,
it doesn't have the full document, so couldn't have a save() routine
like that. However, it does have a routine to re-generate the metadata
section itself, so an approach would be to delete the metadata from the
file and then re-add it.
For example, the remove_rdf routine in svg_annotate does this
(e.g. `svg_annotate --delete`). Unfortunately, svg_annotate doesn't do
keywords yet (but it's on my todo list).
It would probably be better to recast svg_annotate to allow direct
editing of the SVG DOM elements rather than this delete/add approach,
but that'll take more time to get worked out. Some day. :-)
