Yeah, this is a bit more complex than it seems. I though about it too,
but didn't want to add it to the interface, let me explain why.
On XMPP vcard based avatar, for a user to set its own avatar, it uses
the vcard-temp. But it can't just send the vcard diff to update the
vcard. It needs to send the full vcard or the older user info will be
overwritten. So to do this on XMPP at least, we will need to before
sending the new avatar, request the user vcard, update it with the new
vcard and then update it. Is this what we want?
