Finally got out the last of the kinks that were preventing me from using Acidfree and the Links module.
The Links module wasn't building several of the required tables. Still don't' know why. Building them manually makes things work, and now that it's installed it shouldn't' be a problem.
More importantly, I've got mass importing working for Acidfree. Really, the main thing it has going for it over the regular image import is recursiveness. I won't have to import each subdirectory individually. That will be quite spiffy.
So now I have all of the critical components in place functionally. I have to populate the links and the galleries. After that, the site should be ready for beta testers. I can polish up the theme whenever.
Oh, and I really need to repost that poll on user profiles.
