(To Google devs)Using the IM plugin class

 I would like to use the IM plugin class thats included in the Android
source, but it is not SDK friendly. I am happy to submit the revisions
required, but I don't really know what to change. It requires access
to the non-api android.im tree and UID sharing with android.uid.im.
I'm stumped, but I'd really like to implement this. Is it better to
just to submit an official revision?

 This isn't currently supported in the SDK.  I don't know what plans there
are to have it in the SDK, if any.  Certainly we aren't going to have
anything in the SDK that requires you get a shared user ID with a system

provide private support.  All such questions should be posted on public
forums, where I and others can see and answer them.

2. ListActivity woes

My application is displaying a list of items from my database, in
classic Android style, using a ListActivity and a SimpleCursorAdapter.
So far, so good.

However, when I select my item, move to another Activity, and then press
BACK and go back to my ListActivity, I find it's deselected its item and
scrolled all the way to the top. The ListActivity hasn't been stopped or
destroyed, merely frozen, so I'm surprised it's doing this.

Does anyone know why? And, more importantly, how can I stop it?

On a related note, with a ListActivity, is it my responsibility to save
the selected item in the icicle on freeze and restore it on thaw, or
will the ListActivity do it for me? If it is my job, does anyone know
how I can determine the selected item position given a cursor ID?
(ListActivity provides getSelectedItemId() which returns the id of the
currently selected item, but it *doesn't* provide a function to select
an item given the id --- instead it requires the list index.)
