           Summary: Give avatar URI on Account
           Product: Telepathy
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: tp-spec
        AssignedTo: telepathy-bugs at lists.freedesktop.org

Since AM is supposed to save on disk the avatar, it is convenient for clients
to get it as URI. For example contactsd (meego telepathy->tracker daemon) need
to save again on disk which could be avoided if AM communicate where it already
saved it.

Also it's much more efficient than travelling avatar data over DBus.

I know this is breaking the hypothetical case where AM/CM are running on
another machine, but does that really matter?

I'm thinking the same for CM doing the avatar cache, maybe we could have some
flags on the account "this run on the local machine, so please give URI instead
of avatar data over DBus" ?
