You use <PHOTO>? It's good to know someone does... all that
MIME-tagging in there for nothing would be kind of annoying.

Well, DSAs specifically are not for "mood indicators" or such. I
suggest that users would prefer having relatively static avatars --
changing once every N logins, where N > 3 -- right now to having
all-singing-all-dancing metavataroids in 2005.
