Can you explain why this is a problem?  128x128 and all other specs seem 
to be a pretty high-res allowing you to downscale as required.

Furthermore; it seems highly inappropriate to alter the preview size based 
on the operating system of the users preference. Which is what I gather 
you meant with your suggestion.  If not, I'm not sure why there is any 
reason to make the rules any more flexible.

I'm confused.
