The broad range of "image gallery" type modules show that "image gallery" 
means different things to different people. The fact that *you* have found 
image.module to work for your need best does mean that it is the golden 
one? What if you have slightly different needs?

Golden or not golden is a binary thing. If something is golden, it does 
not mean it fulfills my needs. Quality is just one factor, and we should 
certainly not treat it as binary.
