Could we also have 1 apk for each supported dimension (e.g. 1 for
320x480 which only 320x480 users will see, 1 for 480x800 which only
480x800 users will see, but all under the same name)? That dynamic
screen resolution is nice and all, but doing it doesn't make huge sense
if we don't have "dynamic themes" at the same time.

Shipping multiple themes could be done, but at these resolutions they're
not negligibly small (480x800 has 1.5MB worth of backdrops), and some
devices have limited space which shouldn't be wasted by the .apk which
contains unused megs of themes.

Best regards.
