I don't know if opt out is what we should be aiming at but it is still much better than nothing.

this adds a new user preference: "Show my gravatar to other users".

Maybe gravatar visibility to not-logged-in users should be opt-in? Presumably those Bugzilla add-ons that I hear about would have the ability to restore the gravatar to people who have "opted out" anyway.

Marking as verified - opt out works, thanks!
(I also like the idea to disable gravatar for not-logged-in users)
