As I said, the fact that they are svg.  Scalable Vector Graphics.  They have 
lots of detail for when they are big, but can be scaled right down for small 
screens.  On the Eeepc, for instance, it is currently necessary to Alt+drag 
the screen about to find the Apply button in configuration screens.  They 
will just fit to the available screensize, using svg.
