If this wins, it means it has more interest than I thought. I will put it on high priority =)

Shows thread starter avatars on thread listings. If your avatars are stored in the database (which vBulletin does by default) this will not add any additional queries, if you have moved your avatars into your file system this will add an additional query for fetching each avatar. Barely any hit to page load though =). Does not remove anything from your template, but does add icons for new post, hot thread, and closed thread that overlap the avatar in a stylish way.

- thread starter avatar
- hot thread icon
- new thread icon (that links to new post)
- locked thread icon

- show last poster avatar as a mini icon on top of thread starter avatar (this will add queries though)
- options to enable disable things
- options for positions

Avatars in the Filesystem with page load time:

and just to be thorough, plugin disabled with page load time:
hardly even a hit =)
