is there any mechansim built into LibTiff to prevent it from reading all tags into memory when you do a TIFFSetDirectory?

some applications store gigantic quantities of image meta-data in certain tags, and LibTiff happily allocates gigantic quantities of RAM to store this tag data, when all I really want is to query the image dimension or DPI tags.

i see the TIFFReassignTagToIgnore function, but i'm not sure it actually does anything... the arrays it fills aren't used anywhere.
