Unlike not updating covers, which was a single checkbox, this would be rather a lot of work, since I would have to implement some kind of dialog that would list all metadata fields and allow the user to choose which ones to exclude, and the setting would have to be saved per library since different libraries would have different sets of metadata, which would in turn mean that worker processes would need to be passed this information in all contexts, send to device/save to disk/polish.

And note that I personally dont think excluding metadata, for reasons of avoiding a few lines of bloat in an opf files is a good idea. It means that exported books cannot be re-imported, without loss of information.

As such it isn't something I am interested in doing, but, patches are welcome
