This is an old time core-feature, would break all configured Claws Mail
out there for no benefit.

You can already have that with the separate plugin way :)

This can be tricky: for example, there's no room for more than one avatar in
header pane over message view mode.

Current codes are already readable, anyway, if it's blurry it's because it's
being zoomed in, isn't it? 

Maybe it's just the size of the generated QR what needs to be adjusted to be
rendered with a exact number of pixels per QR-point ;)

Sure, and thanks for willing to implement the changes! :)
