Time for a little promotion..;)
Might you or other be interested, I also wrote a number of plugins for the site. Showing some basic exif, a map if you use GPS exif, wikipedia info connected to a post,and a bunch for admin tools to make the working with photography easier.
All depending on the needs and setup of course (the easier part..;)

See for an example for the userside of things,
