OK, now that one I could've used but to take it one step further.... ideally the file types table would have a definition table (eg: "picture", "video", "audio", etcetra) so that everytime you add a new file type (eg: "mov") you then assign it to the corresponding file type category (eg: "mov" is assigned to the "video" category). The definition table would come pre-loaded with some basic categories just like the files types table does currently but the user would be able to add/modify entries. That way then you could do stuff like a switch statement on the file type category so changes like custom URL's based upon the type of file would be a lot easier to do. Heck, to take it even more down the "It'd be cool if..." road the actual URL code itself would be an 'action' field in the 'file type categories' table -- If I wanted to add a new a new type of file "xyz" I first add a new category called "some_weird_file_type" and fill in the 'action' field of how files in this category should be displayed and then just add my new "xyz" file extension to the file types table.
But, I digress. I would tend to think that at the price-point that Gallery is coming in at that the 'typical' Gallery user is somebody who would use the product 'out-of-the-box' so putting a lot of over-head in for features that might only be truly (or, at least, effectively) utilized by a small segment of the customer base would be a fruitless effort in the long run.
At this point I'd rather see Gallery stick to the 80/20 rule and get a 'gold' version out the door.
