No. It's better off as an extension.

from a design standpoint it makes sense to include it though especially now that we have the profile thing in the upper right for consistencey

I don't get this. I see IPB having it, but it makes no sense to me.

It is not the full avatar, but a tiny thumbnail. Why would we want to see tiny thumbnails of profile pictures at the index?

The last column is for news. We want to see what was last posted, by whom and when with emphasis on what was last posted. What matters there the most is what was last posted, rather than who posted it. For the latter we now have notifications with avatars.

An extension wouldn't hurt.

This looks kind of ugly and crowded to me. Maybe if there was some "bubble" that came up with additional information about the last poster as you hover over the username but even that is a bit "meh". That could already be done through an extension though through the use of jQuery and an AJAX call.

I just see no need to display the avatar there. In the actual post, if allowed, fine but not there...
