While getting data that is not your own is not unique in conduit (cfr.
the youtube module); i think it doesn't fit in the current Picasa
dataprovider as that one is two way.  Your additional configuration only
works in case the dataprovider is used as a source; not as a sink, not
as a two way.  All these options currently work in the picasa

Therefore it's maybe better to split your code out into a separate
picasa source dataprovider?  John Stowers might disagree though, so wait
for his comments before you start on it though.
