Checking a .htaccess into git is trivial and would actually help with
the mental model of the gallery, I guess.

One problem I see is that these images would be unstripped, i.e. with
full EXIF information, including GPS data. This is a _huge_ security
concern and would prevent me from ever using this directly.

OTOH, a downsampled web access annex with all EXIF data removed may be
an option.
