When deleting installed apps, the icons in the Dashboard are not arranged correctly based on what app was deleted and where it was located within the Dashboard. This leaves 'holes' within the Dashboard.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Launch Firefox
2. Install the Open Web Apps extension - Can be found at http://people.mozilla.com/~mdabbagh/openwebapps/extension/openwebapps_01112011.xpi
3. Go to https://apps.mozillalabs.com/appdir/
4. Install 2+ apps
5. Go to about:apps
6. Delete the first app that was installed
7. Go to https://myapps.mozillalabs.com/

Expected Results:
There is no gap where the first app was installed (which was just deleted) and the remaining icons are arranged correctly in the Dashboard.

Actual Results:
There is a gap where an app is uninstalled leaving 'holes' within the Dashboard. Please see attachment.

Still occurs after using latest (correct) version of the extension built from the feature/native-app branch (http://people.mozilla.com/~mdabbagh/openwebapps/extension/openwebapps_10112011.xpi)
UX feedback needed.

This was a conscious design choice on my part.  I find the automatic rearranging of icons in iOS frustrating; I want my apps to stay where I put them.
