EXIF in thumbnails

My fotobilder install puts full EXIF info in every thumbnail, so their size becomes 30-40kb. Just like the tumbnails at http://www.picpix.com/brad/gallery/000a9p6t (they're only 20kb, thanks Canon for small EXIF). Can this "feature" be turned off? Or can you advise me a perl module or some small executable for stripping EXIF?

Update: I've done it by adding $image->Profile(name => '*', profile => '') method call just near Set('quality') call in Pic.pm in make_thumbnail sub.
