The only thing is (thinking about it a bit further) you really aren't 
going to be changing your resolution that much, and what happens when it
is changed by another program (I'm thinking quake or UT2003 or
something)?  There is the potential for you to enter q3, return and find
your applets/quick launch/nautilus icons different from when you left
because their size snapped to 8x8 when you entered 640x480 q3 resolution
and then back to 32x32 when you came back to 1280x1024.  I do recall
someone (sorry dude, forgot your name, too lazy to check the archives)
saying that they'd cemented applets and icons in the panel in place, so
that's ok.

Probably needs some work of course, and my concerns may be moot, but
something to think about anyway.

Hope it makes it for 2.4, looking forward to it! :)

No worries, thanks for the heads up :)
