As I have oft stated (but continually failed completely to get anything 
going beyond a simple demo), I strongly recommend using Akonadi for this.

Akonadi provides the perfect infrastructure for caching remote 
collections of images while providing a great framework to provide 
individual implementations for different protocols etc. It will also 
allow all applications who want to interact with these services (e.g. 
screen savers, plasma applets etc.) a very easy path for integration and 
with some degree of offline/detached access.

My time is totally swallowed with other projects but I'd be more than 
happy to set aside time to discuss this on IRC. I've had some really 
great and encouraging discussions with the Akonadi people in the past 
about this and feel that implementing something separate from this 
structure would be very much missing a trick!
