It would seem to me to make more sense at this time to first get MythTV 
viewing G2 galleries since most people will probably use the G2 web or java 
interface to setup the galleries since you have to go through the whole 
process of uploading pictures, etc.

Managing a G2 gallery through Myth would require a lot of UI considerations, 
etc. that will take a while.
