Userpic for Syndicated Feeds

Userpic for Syndicated Feeds

Short, concise description of the idea
Syndicated Feeds could optionally have one [default] userpic, which would be displayed when entries appear on a Friends Page.

Full description of the idea
A userpic could be provided when creating a new Syndicated Feed, subject to the same content requirements as apply to Communities. Any subsequent changes would be handled by whatever mechanism is used to update feed URLs.
