Yes, I think so.

When I took ownership of imagegallery, I was told it needed to be rewritten.
So I did :-)

I'm doing all I can do to separate HTML and code. The current version of
ImageGallery2 already supports themes which are made of CSS + HTML with
some keywords + (optionally) images.

I agree with you that we should share code between the CD archiving and
ImageGallery2 to provide an HTML interface on CDs. In ImageGallery2, the
user interface and the HTML generator are separate classes, so it should be
easy to use the HTML generator from the cdarchiving plugin.
