Gallery... does need a lot of TLC. This is actually one of the reasons
why I plan to integrate OC and Openphoto, even though it theoretically
would be possible to use Gallery (or Gallery+) for the same purpose.
Thus far my experience with both apps has been disappointing - opening
the app shows a spinning cursor while the oompaloompas in the server go
searching in all directions for anything resembling an image. I usually
give up before they do... Next time around they seem to have forgotten
everything and go searching for it again. While OpenPhoto is not a speed
daemon, it runs circles around Gallery(+).

Where OpenPhoto is lacking IMnsHO is, amongst others:

 - photo editing is more or less absent
 - tagging interface is primitive
 - no usable 'media' (video, audio, etc) support

Are these features planned for one of the Galleries?
