I suggest to display Gravatar's ident icons instaed of the default icon when a user has no picture uploaded. Each user gets his very own unique icon automatically calculated by his email adress! This can be done very simple by adding a single parameter to the gravatar url!

This can customize this right now by changing the following line in gravatar.rb:

:default => nil, to :default => 'identicon',

But I think it may be a good idead to turn this on by default.
