how does the server tell the client which is the default picture, if any.

Not sending the picture keyword field specifies "default".

Note that default is different than "which picture is the default picture"-- if you later change your default picture, it changes the picture across the rest of your journal.

It would be nice if the client could tell which picture is currently the default. Journalert 0.93 now shows the actual userpics, not just the keywords, in its entry editor, but it has to show just the text "Default Picture" for the default, because it doesn't know which picture corresponds to it.

It would be nice if the login command's results included the URL of the default picture (which would of course be the same as one of the keyworded pictures.)

Wouldn't that be confusing to the user, with the same picture appearing twice?

But yeah, it makes sense. Feel free to implement it... should be in ljprotocol.pl around line 128. :P

I can do it, actually, but I'm just walking out the door.
