It is actually pretty different than attachment_fu. It doesn't require
it's own model, just a few columns. It is a lot lighter weight. I
actually like attachment_fu a lot, but it is a bit slow and it
requires either RMagick, Mini_magick or Image Science, all of which
are problematic. So I thought I would give it a try. So far, it seems
nice, but I haven't really tried it in production yet.

Are you sure Joyent doesn't have RMagick?
I have a couple of Radiant sites there using both my own extensions
and Sean's page_attachments with RMagick. Mini_magick does not work
there, even if you freeze the gem.
I just discovered Paperclip, http://www.thoughtbot.com/projects/paperclip
. It resizes images without RMagick or Mini_magick, just using the
image_magick library itself. I have a prototype extension based on
it, though it is not a full fledged gallery like Andrea's.
