Colin is spot on. If you choose the right fullscreenMode and set up your 
layout appropriately you don't need any resizeStack handler at all. It 
works beautifully and it's all automatic. All the controls are scaled, 
placed correctly, and even the text size updates proportionally. For me, 
this is the most important improvement to mobile deployment that LC has 

I think Colin was a little too reserved though, and that if carefully 
planned, even a screen full of database fields would scale just fine as 
long as you restrain the content area to the appropriate part of the 
screen. There's little difference really between the "playable area" of 
a game and the "working area" of a data card.
