configurable location for avatars

Just a suggestion for JForum3:

It would be nice if the config file could customize the location for avatars. Right now they must reside in the root folder under /images/avatars/. This makes it harder for me to update my site because I normally nuke the whole folder and re-expland the new version of my site.

Ideally I'd like to be able to customize the local path on my drive that they get uploaded to as well as the URL location. That way I could have Apache serve the images instead of Tomcat (as I do for my other site images).

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
