Is it possible to use local avatars in chat? It really would make the plugin way better....

Hi

Is it possible to use local avatars in chat? It really should be!

I have tried vanilla wp with chat and locally stored avatars (non gravatar ) and they dont show either. i have changed the parameter in settings so they should show.

I have 1000's of users and it'd be really nice if they could see each other.

I could hack the code easily too if someone can tell me how i can retreive the users id number from the row as its produced in 'wordpress-chat.php' .

ie.

$row->avatar = "http://0.gravatar.com/avatar/ad516503a11cd5ca435acc9bb6523536?s=96";

could be:

$row->avatar = get_user_local_avatar_from_id($row->userid);

Any help apprecaited as would really make your plugin far slicker / more useful.
