no. it is absolutely not enough. why? i am asked by product management to do
things that are just not possible in vga (to do sanely/fast). they come first.
you users come second. in the end if product management want X they get X. and
if for X to happen we go QVGA, then so be it. you guys lose. i need a very very
very strong argument against going to qvga - and that means product management
need to drop a feature.

i asked for use case because i am not just talking quality. i am talking a case
where vga makes something possible at all or not. where something just wouldn't
be usable or possible without vga. that is what i asked. i want a use case for
vga. not just a "it looks a bit nicer".
