    As it has been pointed out, right now you can not access data for generated avatars directly from template. By this data I mean:
    • Color, generated from username;
    • Symbol, taken as a 1st symbol from username;
    • (Probably) Symbol color, to contrast with original color.
    By providing this data we can:
    • Create effects for generated avatars like special border-color, text-shadow for Symbol, box-shadow with various colors, etc;
    • Use color information to tint SVG image.
    SVG example: https://jsfiddle.net/CyberAP/ow44edkz/
    In this example we could set 2 colors:
    • background (taken from original Color, #E7ECED in this case);
    • and foreground for avatar image itself (taken from Symbol color or generated by LESS with invert or anything else, #55608 in this case).
    We could use more complicated SVG to customize it even further with colors and different functions LESS has to offer.
