Summary: Google Talk now has avatars!

Initial Comment:
A few minutes ago I was noticed that Google Talk
finally got avatars! After a moment of intense joy, I
realized that if Gaim Adium & Co didn't support it, I
won't see other peoples' avatars for months, if not years.

Update to my last comment. It seems the Google Talk official
client cached an icon I set using an official client on
another system, rather than using the one set in Gaim. This
means that point 1 in my comment is incorrect, it appears
buddy icons set in Gaim do not propogate to other users.

I did a small experiment and can confirm that:

1. A buddy icon set from Gaim on a Google Talk account will
appear for another user using the official Google Talk client.
2. The buddy icon for the other person set in the Google
Talk client does not appear in Gaim.

These were both done on the same Google Talk account details
from Gaim 2.0b3/win32.

I just made a formal test, by opening Gaim 2.0b3 and Google
Talk, with two different Google Talk accounts.

Gaim 2.0b3 didn't show my avatar.

If it can be of any help, it seems that the avatar system is
the same Jabber hack that is used in Mac OS X's iChat. I can
say that because one of my contacts once used iChat as a
Google Talk client and, even if he doesn't use it anymore,
the official Google Talk client showed me his iChat picture.

Since the hack used in Apple's iChat has shown its ability
to store the avatar on the server (that's different from
MSN, of that I'm sure, and probably AIM too), and it is
compatible, it really looks like the same hack.

I hope I was clear enough. I need more sleep. :)

Do you know that gaim doesn't support the google talk
avatars? Or are you just speculating that they might not?
