I also feel that this resolution cap is not based on any good reason.
Scaling is what clients will be doing anyway.  It's common sense.
Restricting the proportions is also an arbitrary decision.  What if a 
client uses elliptic or rectangular shaped avatars?
If the concern is about renegade clients uploading megabyte-size avatars 
at 700dpi (lol) then just put a cap on the filesize.  Maybe a maximum of 
I would like to leave these limitations up to the implementation because 
there is no way to enforce them.  Calling it a broken implementation is 
not going to solve anything.
