The use cases for multiple images per node are many -- and "mini  
gallery" is only one of them. This is indeed a case for  
relationships, which is a higher level issue.

Gerhard's upload_images.module associates multiple images, but only  
displays as thumbnails. Nodeimageblock doesn't use image nodes, but  
just upload files, and doesn't do resizing. My dream module would be  
a combination of these two, using 4.7. region to display the block of  
images (with configurable thumbnail size), displaying the image node  
title/caption and linking to a full size image.
