jsProtoHelper should have an overrideable function to set the buddy icon.

Currently I'm thinking for Twitter...the buddy icon should be uploaded after it's changed. Although this is somewhat debatable I suppose whether people would want their Twitter icon set by Instantbird. But that's OK. :)

So this is possible already by observing the "user-icon-changed" event. Twitter should see this and upload the new icon still -- warping this bug to do that.

See http://log.bezut.info/instantbird/110520/#m393
Summary: jsProtos should be able to have a buddy icon set → Twitter should set the user avatar

If you really want to add some helper code in jsProtoHelper for setting a buddy icon, the only thing I could see would be a function returning the binary data of the current user icon converted to a specified mime type and resized at a specified size. That would hide/share all the image manipulation code.

I don't think uploading the IB avatar to twitter without asking is a good idea. What if you have multiple twitter accounts? And the very public nature of twitter compared to IM protocols means you might not want a photo of yourself there, if you have one set in IB.
