Agreed, this is a downstream integration issue, not a Sugar issue.

See also "The GDM Face Browser".


Both KDM and GDM appear to handle ~/.face.icon so a simple way to
achieve something useful might be to have Sugar write this file (if it
previously wrote the file) when the colour choice is changed in the
control panel.

Sugar currently does not maintain an image avatar for users, in the way
that other social networking or instant messaging systems do, but I
would not be surprised to find a demand for that somewhen.
