We should consider using data_url() to convert images on our most-heavily visited pages on the fly. The main load we get is from Apache requests and isn't a bandwidth issue. This would help lower the amount of requests.

(This can be done for CSS includes as well, but at that point it's better just to include the CSS inline.)

Can I saw "ew"?  I don't want to have to (remember to) change several files every time we change CSS.

You don't have to. This does it at the PHP level so it's automatic. You put an <img> tag with a regular src attribute and it replaces it with a data: URI.

Given the current state of the Camino project, we won't be fixing these website bugs. Mass changing our Product Site bugs (search on "camino-website-bugs").
