Never found hierarchical navigation to an issue.  With fancy indexing, or
just the file manager,  the directories are interspersed with the images
(by default displayed alphabetically.) and at the top there is a breadcrumb
(..) available.

lack of thumbnails is a problem though.

what do you mean by *compression* you can do that with apache itself...
(did you plan on using apache for your web server?)
mod_gzip... for example.

It just occurred to me it would take a couple of minutes to write this in
