Of course, plenty of Muslims are not offended by such images either -
images of Muhammad appear in almost every other language version of
Wikipedia, including Farsi, where the overwhelming majority of editors
are likely to be practicing Muslims.  But having to go to
"special:preferences" is not much reduced from adding something to
your monobook - and excludes IP editors, who make up a significant
percentage of objectors.
