[sjegcxoq] Avatars for online chess

Being able to design an avatar for online chess might be enjoyable for some players, even though it seems silly or extraneous.  The UI will probably keep it possible to turn off having to view your opponent's avatar, but a player might benefit from being able to see his or her own avatar play the moves, a way of fantastically being someone else.

More ambitious is for one's computer to do motion capture to animate one's avatar at the virtual board.
