Using contacts (again)

 Is it possible to create a generic android application that uses
contacts (though a contentResolver) that will run on all android
versions > 1.5 ?

I have backward compatibility issues where f.i. my HTC Hero which is
upgraded to Android 2.1 is not able to use the People.CONTENT_URI even
though this is meant to be deprecated - not unsupported!

If I include the new API style ContactsContract.Contacts.CONTENT_URI
(with or without a check on the Build.SDK_VERSION to alternatively
load the old style URI - similar to the Businesscard example - )
I would still have to set up Eclipse to use the Android 2.1 libraries.
Would this application still run on an Android 1.5 device if I keep
the minsdkversion in the manifest at 3?

I would like to avoid having to branch my application, create 2
eclipse projects and release 2 different applications.

Any advice on this?

1. HTC Hero Stocks Widget Scrolling Ticker functionality

I have an HTC Hero from Sprint in the US and was curious about the how
the Stocks HTC widget scrolls text like a ticker. It is only the 4x1
sized widget that scrolls quotes. As far as I know, homescreen widgets
can only use RemoteViews for the layout, which is limited to the
following layouts and widgets (from

    * AbsoluteLayout
    * FrameLayout
    * LinearLayout
    * RelativeLayout
    * AnalogClock
    * Button
    * Chronometer
    * ImageButton
    * ImageView
    * ProgressBar
    * TextView
      Descendants of these classes are not supported.

I know that this could be done in an app with android.widget.scroller,
but that can't be used in a homescreen widget. Would this
functionality be specific to the Sense UI homescreen capabilities? I
guess, my main question is if this can be replicated for a standard
Android widget and if so how.
