Tnx for the alternative_gravatar_url!

Using vars in the .ini makes the init complain that some vars are missing. (resulting in 500 errors on Apache).

I hacked a string replace in helpers.py so it substitutes {email}, {md5email} and {size}

Sorry for that ! I didn't have enough time to test it. It's fixed now, and i added a test for this. Using {} to format seems better, since it's used in other places in RhodeCode
