I did a similar thing to blog module a while ago.[1] I really very much like 
this concept of 'display only' modules. That just take existing nodes 
(flexinodes most of the times, but images come as a popular second) and 
present them in some way. For example present them in a forum way. Or in a 
blog way. I believe this is /the/ way :)

PLease go ahead, I am sure people are interested.
