 Jacob - not so sure about that - earlier this year, I had major tickets
 with WPMU regarding non-displaying avatars and images that were traced to
 fopen not being available under PHP 5.x (can't find the original
 discussions since WPMU and BuddyPress changed their forum engines and

 A number of people including Andrea_r got roped in on that one, I think
 johnjamesjacoby did too, and all conceded the catch when I finally tracked
 it down.

 Can you absolutely assure that all requirements for fopen have been
 removed from WP 3.0 otherwise you might be being a bit premature here, and
 have to leave backwards compatibility in place - this also rubs against
 the many users reporting images not displaying after upgrade to 3.0 from
 earlier versions.
