#3890: Change form on profile page to enctype="multipart-form/data"?

 I'm using a profile picture plugin that adds a picture upload section to
 the profile page.  It does not have its own submit button, however, but
 rather uses the profile_update hook when the entire page is submitted.
 There is a problem with this however in at least IE7 (unsure about older
 IE versions) because the form on profile.php does not have the enctype
 ='multipart-form/data' parameter.  Firefox seems to recognize that part of
 the submission contains data without this parameter.  Obviously this
 change can be made easily by those wishing to use this plugin, or similar
 plugins that might use an <input type=file> tag on the profile page, but
 requires a WP core edit which most users try to avoid.  I offer the change
 up as a suggestion for future versions of WP.
