 Replying to [comment:2 sascha_silbe]:
 > I'm not convinced changing sugar-emulator to use some odd size (832x624

 > with the default scaling of 72
 it is default scaling, see bin/sugar.in

 > 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]).

 but we already have HIG which says 16x12 cells and it is sugar emulator
 thus having not fully emulated (by default, since user can pass proper
 parameters) sugar could be wrong way
