I was taking a look at the latest patch, and I'd have couple
suggestions to the Subscription UI:

1) Today for the upload ui, a user can choose a "New Album" or select
an existing album. How about we just create a new entry "New Remote
Album" for the Picasa or Flickr albums, and then show required fields
like : type (Picasa, Flickr, or anything new we might have) and then
the URL, username and password ?

2) Both upload.html and upload.js seems to have specific fields to
picasa_xxxx. This will not scale when we add support for different
types of remote albums. We should just make generic fields like
album_remote_url, album_remote_user, etc and use those independent of
the type of remote album that is being added to the gallery

3) It seems that subscription is actually working, but the ui is
acting a little weird as it seems to have succeeded adding the new
remote album, but it then stays on the same page with the fields all
populated as if a error had happened.

4) When I go back to albums view, it does not show any of the remote
albums. Is that part supposed to be working already ?

I'll look in the backend part later on when I find more time :)
