We should start designing the storage solution on the mailing list,
AFAIK the solution is going to be running on the mobile device, which
probably already have some type of storage available for applications
(e.g. see HTML5 storage APIs article [1]). Also, if this is going to
be part of the phonegap client, we need to see how this would work
together with metadata from remote albums and it need to be in sync
with the remote information when new albums get added or existing one
gets modified.
