On a layout I want to scale the background image (keeping it's aspect
ratio) to the space allocated when the page gets created. Anyone have
any idea how to do this?

I am using layout.setBackgroundDrawable() and am using a
BitmapDrawable to setGravity for clipping and filling, but don't see
any option for scaling.
