The initializeGallery is executed only once, and it handles
initializing the sample albums from the fileSystem to the JCR

I don't think the issue is really during init, but during read. We are
storing the remote albums all together with the other albums in the
same level at the repository, this causes the JCRGalleryImpl to find
the albums and then try to find a list of "images" for these albums
which in the case of remote albums is not available. If we tide up
that part, things should be more straightforward, and I guess we can
either modify the regular JCRGalleryImpl to handle both (delegating to
the RemoteAlbumPhotStream, or partition the JCR to better
differentiate these different type of albums.
