This isn't a "New Feature" request, but I can't select anything else - sorry for that.
Whenever a user has no skin but does have a cape,
redirects to the cape instead of returning a 404.
For users with no skin and no cape, a 404 is returned.
For users with a skin, it redirects to the proper skin texture.
Find a player that has no skin but still has a cape.
I know that I can get the proper skin (i.e. no skin) when I know the UUID, but we're using skins.minecraft.net to avoid additional HTTP requests
I also posted some details and a possible explanation of the bug here: https://github.com/Jake0oo0/crafatar/issues/44
