I can't speak at length about why the previous solution went away, but I don't think it comes as a surprise to many people here that it was very error prone and increasingly unstable. I think when the dust clears, most of you will actually be much happier.
Gravatar isn't a pain in the buns if you already use it, which a ton of people actually do. Without it, there would now be no way to have a custom image at all. And as the league note mentions, you'll soon have another alternative, and I can say that one won't require any sort of new registration.
