That was my thought as well, although I have never seen Gallery2.

What about rgallery[1]?  It's a rails application -- I haven't looked 
into it in any detail, but if it supports the rails theme plugin[2] we'd 
be 1/2 way there to having a gallery that supports existing Typo themes.

Typo themes and themes for the rail theme plugin are close enough that 
getting a theme to work for both apps would be easy.

Does rgallery support themes out of the box?
