Interesting. I wonder if they've changed it recently. I only pointed
it out because a software product I'm working on had a bug because it
was building the URLs with "https://www..."; and the resulting images
were showing as X's instead of avatars. We had to change the
implementation to use "https://secure..."; to get the avatars to load
correctly. That's been ~8 months ago now, though, so maybe it's no
longer the case. It seems like it would be much more convenient if
they just changed the scheme.
