I did a search on picasaweb and found that the url it returned included lh in it – anybody know what that stands for?

picasaweb.google.com/lh/search ...

I belief the codename for PicasaWeb was Lighthouse.

hl = language of the interface (it may come from "host language")
You'll see it in all localized Google applications.

I think PWA was designed to be part of a group of services called Lighthouse, but I can't find the post(s) with definate info.

And LH2 is what Picasa Web Albums was known as before it was released – and is also its service name:
