The 0.06 release of SVG::Metadata is now available on CPAN, here:


The change for this release is the addition of a --delete flag to
svg_annotate, which removes any <metadata>, <rdf>, or <rdf:RDF> tags
from one or more svg files (it also recursively processes directories,
if specified).  Thanks go to Nicu for the suggestion (see below).
