Small change to login mode perhaps?

Cryo's wanting a way to access userpics from a client lead to a small oozing of brain-cheese I'd like to share.

How about returning a pick_n_url for each of a user's pictures in results of a login mode request.

Pros:
  • allows clients to access the pictures.
  • unlikely to upset any existing clients

Cons:
  • extra bandwidth usage from clients downloading the pics.
  • extra cruft in the login mode
  • Current Music
