i have no preference for a separate package (or separate packages), i 
need only an easy way to add images in the packages already existing on 
the website.

or just only part of a tarball

we need an easy interface, probably a web interface for maintaining 
(definitely not CVS). this way some contributors (authors, regular users 
etc.) can gain the "maintainer" status and do the job.

i think is right to start this now, when the gallery is not yet huge and 
is manageable. when it will be, say, 10 times bigger, also our effort 
will be bigger
