Chris, I would be interested in that "patch" too. (or even as command
line option). I have my files named similiarly, and in most cases the
EXIF date & file timestamp are set by jhead, but in some cases, and
especially for folders, the timestamps are wrong, but the folder name
would sort it the right way.

I like photofloat very much too and would like too see it evolve and
e.g. be used for NextCloud photo gallery (or at least the simple but
efficient concept with the json/javascript/single html page).
