And, of course, the Google Picasa API ( 
http://code.google.com/apis/picasaweb/overview.html ) is only available 
in Java, .NET, PHP, Python, and Objective-C.  However, if you wanted to 
write a C++ or Qt-based API, you could easily put it in.  :)

It may be possible to create a C++/Python plugin (I think MythArchive 
was done that way), Google's API license permitting.
