I have a project that requires extra metadata for images AND simultaneous

If english only was acceptable, Custom Field would work.

But custom field does not play with Multilanguage (
http://codex.gallery2.org/Gallery2:Modules:multilang ).

I can:
1. make multilang play with custom field
OR
2. expand core item and multilang to include new fields.

I think 2 will be easier and quicker (please comment!).

#2 is definitely not in the G2 philosophy.  With #2, there's no easy way to upgrade your G2 with future official upgrades that might touch the tables you intend to change.

I suggest you build a module that is specific to your needs or go with #1, making custom fields work with multilang. If the changes are reasonable, they could go back into the official version. If not, and it's a DB specific change, I'd suggest a fork of the modules that you need to change.

I am looking for a comprehensive checklist of where I need to make mods.

Or advice regarding alternate ways of getting there.
