           Summary: Current avatars API is likely to generate too much DBus
           Product: Telepathy
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: telepathy-spec
        AssignedTo: telepathy at lists.freedesktop.org
        ReportedBy: mardy at users.sourceforge.net

I wrote about this in the telepathy ML, but the discussion didn't went on:


Please read the mail for an explanation of the problem. My proposed solution is
to have a RequestAvatars() API that requests several avatars at once, which
will be returned as function output (not as a signal).
If there are DBus limitations against this (maximum number of pending calls),
then the problem is on DBus side -- you shouldn't hack on the API.
