Yeah, I had the same problem and applied a rather "harsh solution" : amputation
:) I'll add back the cropping code later.

Of course I will, I committed to. As long as I feel having feedback on the other
end I'll push until the conversion is complete, and beyond (ie. adding back lost
functionality and "beautifying the design"). It's very refreshing for my brain
to do this :)

I'll have more spare time in the comming monthes also, and as I'm doing this on
my spare time, that means more hours to dedicate to pxa maintainance.
