No, actually. The reason is that we'd like to stay close to what
git.git is doing.

I think you misinterpreted me. I think the clientside work you're
doing is interesting and worth considering. I was speaking to somebody
earlier today who is actually working on a JSON API for cgit, so that
_all_ rendering can be done clientside.

What I'm specifically rejecting in my comment here is adding gravatar
support, some web service, in C directly to the core of cgit, when the
lua support has no demonstrable problems.
