I don't have enough patience to watch the video, but my question is how
does mailchimp/whatever actually track the 'open'. Is this via the
standard web bug that we already deal with, via some modified web bug
such as an html stylesheet reference rather than a 1x1 transparent
image, or via some 'new' mechanism?
