Comment (by DJPaul):

 I think there's been some misunderstanding. I'm sorry if my questions
 contributed to that. This new feature is super exciting, because it's the
 first time in about three or four years that anyone has significantly
 change the avatar upload feature. :)

 I was asking the question because it's functionality that I have wanted
 inside a BP for a long time (uploads to Gravatar), so I wanted to check
 that we were building these new screens in such a way that it would be
 possible to build that kind of thing. I find asking questions like this
 often helps to make sure we are building things in a modular, extendable
 way, rather than a bespoke, inflexible, one-off solution.

 @imath, I appreciate the time you spent building an example for how other
 developers could add their own avatar management panels. Thank you. You've
 allayed my concerns, and proved the merits of this new approach you have
 built --- and also written most of an example for a future codex page. :)

 I asked about JS/Backbone specifically because this ticket came fully-
 formed, with a patch. I was probing to see if "we" considered the
 implementation strong by asking questions about the technical approach.
 Sometimes tickets start with technical discussion before much code is
 written, and sometimes vice-versa -- I was trying to get my head to
 understand your perspective on this matter in order to hopefully provide
 useful feedback; not start an argument. :)
