Comment (by hnla):

 * Patch .css.03 addresses WP admin extended user profile modal window
 * Updates  groups 'photo' screen for jcrop
 * Improves user account profile avatar views

 We are, with these styles, in a somewhat ''Damned if you do, damned if you
 don't'' type scenario

 We are attempting to manipulate element layout on a media query basis
 while also attempting to style these elements for a variety of themes
 (twenty* at this stage). Intrinsically this is and always will be a flawed
 if not impossible task, media queries were never the answer to responsive
 layouts given they simply denote a point where the browser viewport hits a
 certain width but can't describe or determine how the elements within that
 viewport are laid out and to what widths.

 We will have to accept that compromise is inevitable in trying to achieve
 perfection some themes/layouts will work better than others.

 The Camara views by and large perform nicely across a range of themes and
 media breakpoints for mobile tablets etc (proof testing in real devices
 essential though).

 Sadly the existing jcrop image cropping is not and never has been suited
 to responsive layouts and is extremely difficult to manipulate without
 breaking functionality, it's here that we will have to accept a large
 amount of give and take, but we never have had a particularly great layout
 for this screen.

 There are still areas that will require fine tuning so testing and
 feedback is needed now. Testing in the more irksome browsers (yeah you
 know who you are) is still to be done.
