Changing the mouse pointer when using the Emulator

 Since the Emulator displays a larger screen than the actual phone, how
about a way to set the mouse from a simple arrow pointer to something
larger, like an oval, that would better represent someone's finger?
I've seen applications and have experienced it first hand where a
layout has too many widgets too close and becomes hard to point at and
click on with my finger.  Seeing a representation of a "finger" when
using the Emulator would not only be cool, but very useful.

Is there a way to specify that a drawable should only be repeated vertically
and then stretched horizontally?
At the momemt I use the following which repeates the drawable both in the
vertical and horizontal direction:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<bitmap xmlns:android=""
