What do you want to see here? Some more categories, forums, and mods? Hmm...

Why not? Heh. (realizing this is an old thread and was old when I got here)
Having recently done work with images and databases, it's not that hard. You only store each avatar once, and then you have a field for each post that links to the avatar used to make that post.
The only difficulty is when avatars are hosted off-site. In that case you make it an option for users to disable this feature.

BTW, I liked how I could host my own CGI avatar, even though it wasted my CPU time with nearly 1.3 million square roots per request.
