Contact Images and Gravatar

Hi All, it's been a long time since I posted...

If I remember correctly, contact images predominately come from Gravatar? How widely used is Gravatar?

Wouldn't it make more sense for Fastmail to poll Gmail, Yahoo and other services for contact images?

Oddly, I have a few gmail contacts that show a contact image, in fastmail, but most do not...

Maybe they are, maybe they aren't?

I have Gravatars set up for all my personal e-mail accounts.

But saying that, I've just checked my FastMail inbox, and only a very small percentage of e-mails have associated Gravatars.
