SDK 0.9 camera issues

I am porting from SDK M5 RC15 (where my app worked) to SDK 0.9 beta,
and I run into the following problems with the camera preview:

1. The camera preview on the emulator gives a greyscale animation,
while I need a color view for testing. How can I fix this? Having the
color animation of SDK M5 RC15 would have been OK for me. I hope that
greyscale preview is not going to be the preview standard for the
physical phones?

2. I can resize the camera preview, but I cannot position it??? The
current documentation does not specify parameters like leftPixel or
topPixel for use with the camera preview mode. As a reminder: Java ME
(J2ME) has setDisplaySize() and setDisplayLocation() for VideoControl,
and we need equivalents in Android. Will this be fixed? I need a small
camera preview that is not stuck at the top left corner of the screen.

Then for the camera snapshots, takePicture(),

3. There is still no method to query the camera device for supported
resolutions. As a reminder: Java ME (J2ME) has
getSupportedStillResolutions() for CameraControl, so we need an
equivalent in Android because different phones will support different

Despite all the Android SDK 0.9 API changes, all of this doesn't look
like a near-final camera API set, right? How many times do we have to
port our Android code to completely different API sets with each new
SDK? And that while it would have been easy to "borrow" some camera
API concepts from J2ME.
