replace Gallery module

We currently use Gallery2 which was a performance bottleneck when we got hit by Slashdot. We've done quite a few optimizations since then, but still, G2 create more DB load (more connections, more queries) and it transfers files via PHP instead of statically which is about 10 times faster.
Either write a new (or extend an existing) gallery module which does what we need and maybe also has slideshows or use Drupal's default gallery (which doesn't work with the category module, see #1136). In any case, our current image upload module must be supported (I don't know if that needs extra work).
Note, #1132 will be affected by this.
