Ross Burton July 19, 2019, 8:33 p.m.
The metadata parser is fragile: first it coerces a bytes() to a str() (so the
string is b'LastModifiedDate:2019...'), assumes the first line is the date, and
then uses a regex to parse (which then includes the trailing quote as part of
the date).

Clean this up by parsing the bytes as UTF-8 (ASCII is probably fine, but this is
safer), iterate through the lines and split on colons to find the right
key/value pair.
