Re: [ApacheGallery] Image URLs

I'd like to see that patch. I use google to search my photo galleries, and
it should be able to search based on comments and image directories but
doesn't, because google's robots are designed not to look into .jpg files
(since there's no point in indexing normal .jpg files on content....but
the files on A::G are only similar to jpeg in extension, since they
actually serve up html when requested.)

Maybe make it so that it will make all the links be photoname, rather than
photoname.jpg/png, etc. The only limitation it will create is that you
can't have samename.jpg and samename.png in the same directory. with no
extension, it will just request whichever one comes first in the list.
This makes more sense than having the .html tag, which would mislead
somebody into thinking that it is a static page.
