png metadata not included in sequence diagrams

I just realized that plantuml embeds the code in the png, which is actually a great feature.
However I realized that it does in Activity and class diagrams but is not doing it for sequence diagrams.
Is this on propose or is it a bug?

Thanks for the report : it's indeed a bug.

We fix it in the last beta :

Actually, we were not sure if this feature was useful to someone, so we are glad that you like it :-)

Yes, actually as we need to use a wiki (that the company doesn't allow to install plugins) by posting just the image allows someone to update any diagram in the future just by getting the source from the metadata, edit and update the image again :)

This is a very useful feature!! :)
Thanks Arnaud

Woah! This is a great feature!

I was now able to get the parsed structure from the files I generated. The files were depending on a lot of includes. Now, I can upload the PlantUML parsed source to say Confluence or something....
