Screen resolution related configuration options

Can someone please provide to me a good argument why screen resolution 
dependent KConfig options should be stored?  I understand that the 
dialog/widget/window is resized relative to the resolution.  However I think 
it makes more sense to check if the stored geometry is greater than the 
current geometry, and if it is, shrink it.  If it is too small, the user can 
resize easily enough.

Conversely, if the sizes are stored, then how do you deal with people who have 
multi-head or xinerama, and even those who enable and disable smart placement 
with xinerama?  It's really ugly.

I would like to recommend that we remove screen resolution based configuration
