    I think libravatar is great and welcome a pear package for it.

    Your code nevetheless needs some ground work:
    - Since you are interfacing a web service, use Services_Libravatar as package name
    - Give the class the proper class names (Services_Libravatar), put them in the correct place
    - You don't need "@access" docblock tags anymore since we're on php5
    - You could cache DNS results, which make using an libravatar object for several email addresses faster
    - Please have a look at Net_DNS and if you can use it. Maybe it already includes sorting by priority, so you don't have to use your own implementation.
