This is going to require the high quality image scaling work from bug 517294 which is currently a low priority.
Don't think it blocks, in the greater context of things, but we definitely should fix. Adding the owner of bug 517294 so he knows what's stacking up on that one :)

Mass bug change to replace various 'parity' whiteboard flags with the new canonical keywords. (See bug 1443764 comment 13.)

This code isn't part of shell integration so moving to widget where most of that code lives.
