Okay, I'm good with the aspect ratio as is for now, but would like to be 
able to revisit it if we hear squawking. Cool?

But can we *please* lose the border? I personally like the way my 
headshot looks (centered in the box), but the border really looks like 
ass. If we're going to leave the creativity up to the user, let's not 
force the border on them. Them what wants 'em can build 'em into the 
images. Dig?

Also, Madhu, remember that you can include witty text in the whitespace 
of your image! :)
