[theme-reviewers] Distilled Review

in my single.php i use <?php echo get_avatar(the_author_meta(), '100'); ?>
it adds a single gravatar for that single author, as you can see on the 
bottom of this page.

the difference with page-authors.php on this page
is that it lists ALL authors with their avatars

this could be done using wp_list_authors as described in 
but this does NOT include any option for avatars.
All examples on the web, including an existing plugin, use the wpdb call 
for this functionality.

again, if it is not desirable for themes in the WordPress repository to 
include themes that have a direct query i would be more than willing to 
remove it and have it replaced with the wp_list_authors function without 
the avatar displayed next to the authors.

thanks again for the feedback Tom, its extremely valuable
