Description James Clancey 2017-05-30 21:54:02 UTC
On all platforms, there should be a requested size passed in. Or at least the native view, so people can deduce the size themselves.

A few major benefits instantly become a possibility.

* This will fix all OOM issues from loading bitmaps that are too large on android:
    This will allow us to decode one the correct size.

* People are able to create SVG image sources, that can generate an image the right size.

* People can modify the URL with a width/height request to download an image of the right size.
