[Mediawiki-l] gallery of images from a category

Misunderstanding of the issue:
The user does not want to make categorized images show up as a gallery.
The user wants the images, used in certain pages, of which are located 
in a category, to be listed.
Image inclusion < Page < Page is in X Category

This sounds like something best handled by the DPL Extension. Basically 
it's a page list but in gallery format. The issue is it'll be a bit of a 
subquery, so you'll end up with a DPL query inside of another DPL query, 
that's going to blow up to a fairly hefty amount of database queries.
