I'm creating a BuddyPress extended profile that requires and image field. Is there an existing plugin or technique that I could use to accomplish this?

If there is, does it manage it without editing core BuddyPress files?

I figured out a way to go about adding the image type field without editing core BuddyPress files. The solution is long so I did a post about it which you can access here: http://alextheafrican.wordpress.com/2012/03/10/how-to-add-an-image-field-to-buddypress-extended-profile-fields/

This would be really helpful if it could be turned into a plugin.

UPDATE: I got around to creating the plugin and it's available at: http://wordpress.org/plugins/buddypress-xprofile-image-field/
