Comment (by sooskriszta):

 @imath Super work.

 I have a question though.

 Since you are developing the attachments API which does much of the same
 work as WordPress Media Manager, why make a huge deal about the *Profile
 Photo* at all?

 What I mean is, of course, there should be a profile photo. But do we
 really need to upload and store it separately? Shouldn't the member be
 able to mark any of the photos in his/her library/albums as a profile
 photo? A bit like how in photo gallery software, you can mark which photo
 to make the album cover...basically while you are on a photo, if you are
 the owner of that photo, you see a link - "make this my profile photo"
