My naive point of view:
I guess that, let's say, 98% of the code you have to write is
independent of digikam.  Say if you 'waste' 80% of your time
discussing with the current gallery developer and code only 20%.
Nevertheless you reach your goal 10 time faster (1/50 * 5) as
if you do it alone.

There is also a much higher change that you 'project' survives,
because there is already the active community of the web gallery.
and everything they do, help you and digikam.

But as I said:  It's your choice.  Do what you like and have fun!

For me this mean in most cases tighly working and discussing with
others.   But your case may be different and my suggestion not a
big help.

  To me vi is Zen.  To use vi is to practice zen. Every command is
  a koan. Profound to the user, unintelligible to the uninitiated.
  You discover truth everytime you use it.
