 > We could possibly use this as a template for deprecating, eventually,
 all pluggable functions. Any thoughts here?

 In the past, we've deprecated without making the promise that core will
 continue to use the plugged version [18513]. If all instances in core
 would use the `force_core_function` argument, it seems unnecessary to
 continue looking for a plugged `get_avatar()`.

 That said, I'm also not familiar with issues that may have arisen from
 previous deprecated pluggables. If there are reasons for core to use
 `wp_get_avatar()` without forcing, then the above code looks sane for
 maintaining back-compat.

 Looking around, #19615 could also be a good test (mostly because it's
 open) for deprecating pluggable `get_currentuserinfo()`.
