Gravatar on issue#show is at a weird position (Bug #774)

The position of the author gravatar on individual issue pages looks wrong.

I think the gravatar should be in the "box" of the author name, probably even spanning the title box above. Thoughts?

For later reference, the current layout looks like this:

[#774 #815 #807] Fix styles used for gravatars in issues

Gravatars now generally have a border and are displayed equally.
The Issue history formatting is cleaned up with much of the positioning
magic removed in favor or a simple float.

I'm still thinking about it but I think removing the entire authoring line and putting the author and creation date into the attributes would be best (move "Added by Holger Just 9 days ago." into the table). Then the issue author gravatar icon can appear on that field, just like how the assignee does currently.

Another option would be to place the gravatar right above the author line. Further an increase of the gravatar size compared to the commenters gravatars gives some visual distinction between these too roles (reporter, commenter). For example, see change and example page (temporary).

On a side note, this change goes well with the changes I made to the Code Review Plugin.

Why actually not placing the gravatar to the left of title, following horizontal line (underline of title), and "Added by... Updated about..." line? This is also similar to the current arrangement of the entries in the issue changes history except that the gravatar of the reporter is proportionally bigger (just as the title is bold and has greater font size).

I have moved the gravatar of the author into the author line which makes it smaller, similar to the assignee in the list. This at least fixes the layout in a way that is not totally broken.

If this new layout is undesired, I'm open to new ideas (preferably with some mockups).
