Agreed. I see two viable options:

a) Use gpe-gallery and add an OpenMoko specific UI on top of it -- provided it 
has a sane separation between UI and application logic.

b) Use EFL (in C or python) to write a slick pictureviewer from scratch -- 
utilizing epsilon for thumbnails.

Personally, I'm leaning towards b).
