Since 2.3.1 feh supports exif tags when build using 'make PREFIX=/usr exif=1'
Any reason for not using it?

Only that upstream does not enable it by default (even when libexif is installed). Any reasons for using it?

This looks both harmless & useful

(only if compiled with exif=1) display some EXIF information in the bottom left corner,
similar to using --info with exiv2 / exif‐grep.

It's not used by default anyway.
