The idea is good, and the component shows promise, but it is limited by some bugs and user controls. I found that registered users can upload files to any gallery even if the permissions are turned off. There isn't a global feature set yet implemented for permission settings on all galleries. There are some good hacks being done to give it the functionality it needs in some areas, like scrolling galleries, but none of these are yet implemented in the base. On the plus side, it requires no bridge. Just can't use it yet for a production site. I am trying the alpha, which is supposed to have bug fixes over the current stable release. I can't imagine they removed functionality, so, take the review for what it is worth.
