My activity cannot support portrait orientations, only landscape.  I suspect
that a great number of other activities have sub-par functionality in
rotated mode as well.

It would be great if in addition to notification events there was a way (in
activity.info?) to specify constraints like "portrait only" or "landscape
only".

As an aside, it would also be great to have a way, either user preference or
activity setting, to disable the overlay that appears when you move the
mouse to the corners of the screen.  I personally don't find it at all
useful (the keyboard keys are much faster!) and it constantly pops up
unintentionally, forcing me to move the mouse and *wait* to get back to
where I wanted to click.

Best,

Wade
