Additon to tumme.el

I would like to add the following code to tumme.el. It provides a
facility to very easily edit file tags and comments of image files in
a buffer using widgets. It is actually quite simple but in my opinion
a very nice piece of functionality for end users. The code does not
affect any old functionality in tumme (only new functions and
variables are added). I also propose yet another key binding (C-t e)
in Dired that will call `tumme-dired-edit-comment-and-tags'.

Is it a bad time now for things like this?

;;;; Code begins here

(require 'widget)

 (require 'wid-edit))

(defvar tumme-widget-list nil
 "List to keep track of meta data in edit buffer")

(defun tumme-dired-edit-comment-and-tags ()
 "Edit comment and tags of current or marked image files.
Edit comment and tags for all marked image files in an
easy-to-use form."
 (setq tumme-widget-list nil)
 ;; Setup buffer.
 (let ((files (dired-get-marked-files)))
   (switch-to-buffer "*Tumme Edit Meta Data*")
   (make-local-variable 'widget-example-repeat)
   (let ((inhibit-read-only t))
   ;; Some help for the user.
"\nEdit comments and tags for each image.  Separate multiple tags
with a comma.  Move forward between fields using TAB or RET.
Move to the previous field using backtab (S-TAB).  Save by
activating the Save button at the bottom of the form or cancel
the operation by activating the Cancel button.\n\n")
   ;; Here comes all images and a comment and tag field for each
   ;; image.
    (lambda (file)
      (let* ((thumb-file (tumme-thumb-name file))
             (img (create-image thumb-file))
             comment-widget tag-widget)
        (insert-image img)
        (widget-insert "\n\nComment: ")

                             :value (or (tumme-get-comment file) "")))
        (widget-insert "\nTags:    ")

        ;; Save information in all widgets so that we can use it when
        ;; the user saves the form.
        (setq tumme-widget-list
              (append tumme-widget-list
                      (list (list file comment-widget tag-widget))))
        (widget-insert "\n\n")))

 ;; Jump to the first widget.
