Well, that metadata was introduced recently and I doubt anyone has already
scripts relying on this; if other formats had a timecode meta yes, but
it's not the case.

Also, fixing the scripts to support both "gxf_timecode" and "timecode" is
not that hard. And of course, if some people are already doing some |grep
timecode or similar, having the redundancy of the meta may break things.

But anyway, I'll send a version with both timecode and gxf_timecode later.
Note that it will clutter the code a bit for a while since there are 3

OTOH, I could just bump the micro digit?
