 > I don't know — maybe we can get away with ditching it, deprecating it,
 and just using a new `wp_get_avatar()`, and anyone who is currently
 overriding `get_avatar()` just gets screwed and told they should have been
 using the filter.

 Would there be a `wp_get_avatar()` use in core where we wouldn't use
 `force_core_function` to override?

 Though... providing the check for the pluggable at least announces the
 deprecation, even if core itself skips it. This could help push developers
 to transition more than just moving to `wp_get_avatar()` and leaving
 behind a deprecation notice that may never fire.
