I don't think that adding avatar=no is what was meant with opt-out, at least
not what I meant with opt-in.  I meant that avatars should not be retrieved for
anyone except for bts users who chose (opt-in) to be on a list maintained on a
debian machine.

The caching is a good idea, although I don't think it fully solves the
discussed concerns.

Anyhow thanks for your excellent work on the bts.  The bts is really important
to Debian, so your contributions are making a big difference for Debian.
