By that logic you could just as well open a account on blogger.com and
drop typo all together - why is it that so many of you feel that
adding gallery functionality or categorized resource handlers will
bloat your blog ?, you can just chose not to use it -  typo already
have a ton of functionality that I do not use, still I appreciate
having the choice.

If you want to keep using flickr or some other photo service then by
all means do that. I just do not consider a free flickr account the
holy grail of photo blogging and the existence of flickr is not a
argument for having gallery support in typo. It is a relevant blog
technology, somebody volunteered for implementing it and you do to
have to use it.

Embrace change.
