Class modifications

Sticking this here as a placeholder:

Open tracking: instead of embedding a spacer image, which is stripped by many email services, add the option to set class="track" to an image tag. That image will then be converted to a tracking image.

Advanced open tracking: option to enable htaccess/mod rewrite to create custom urls to avoid issues of email providers caching the tracking image(so instead of http://www.mydomain.com/images/tracking ... =something a better url is http://www.mydomain.com/images/tracking/uid.png which mod rewrite converts back to the correct url)

Embedding image options: class="embed" or class="noembed" to indicate images which should be sent with the email as opposed to images to be loaded from the server.

Advanced image embedding option: class="embed2k" where 2 can be replaced with any number, so only small images are embedded while large ones are loaded from the site. This can be used to send spacers and small icons that provide positioning so they will be displayed, wheras the bigger images load off the site.

Clicktracking: class="track" or class="notrack" to flag url links that should be tracked or not tracked.

Seems like a good solution to me. Could you file a feature request in Mantis, or add a note to the following bug report: http://mantis.phplist.com/view.php?id=7683

Useful suggestions. Could you please enter these as feature requests at Mantis. Thanks!

has this modification already been implemented?
Since almost every mail I send out has images, I'm very interested in using this feature instead of the standard open tracking image.
