 I'm not convinced changing sugar-emulator to use some odd size (832x624
 with the default scaling of 72 if I've got my math right) is a good idea.
 Sugar should scale well to real-world screen sizes. 800x600 was chosen
 because it's used in actual, current hardware. If we really want to raise
 the bar, we should go for 1024x600 (used by several netbooks, e.g.
 [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EeePC#Specifications Asus Eee PC]).
