I find the 3 column setting to be just too huge on my flame.

So I'd like to be able to somehow tweak the initial value of the preference that controls this at build time.

Normally, I would just create a custom-prefs.js or something, but the vertical home screen doesn't seem to use an actual setting.

For now, I'm editing and changing

> _cols : minIconsInRow

to be:

> _cols: 4

I also noticed that on my flame, when I use 4 columns that the rightmost column is slightly cut off, but I find that better than 3 columns.

This is not something that really blocks the feature at all, I consider this more of a developer enhancement at this point. Not sure why it was marked as 2.0.

You can copy this file to /gaia/distribution/ to test the feature
It would be an interesting feature for OEMs & operators, giving them more flexibility to customize devices, so I would suggest to uplift it to 2.0

We will request uplift for anything that lands in the next few weeks to not put vertical homescreen at risk. If we don't we will run into risks with merge conflicts.

This is needed for the vertical homescreen.
