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.

1. How to detect when user switches Tasks (stack of Activities)?

Say that TaskA is currently in the foreground and my ActivityA is
somewhere within its stack. Is there a way for ActivityA to get
notified or detect when the user switches from TaskA to TaskB?

As a use scenario, when the user launches my app, my ActivityA will
always be the root Activity of the newly created Task. ActivityA will
make use of Activities from other Apps, which will be pushed on the
same Task. I would like to get notified when the user has switched to
another application. In this case, onStop() in MyActivityA does not
suffice as that will also get invoked if the user navigates to another
screen within my app.


2. Importing a keystore into Eclipse

I've created a new keystore using keytool and placed it in the Users/
MyName/.android folder. However, when I start the Eclipse Export
Wizard, it only shows my old debug keystore. How do I get Eclipse to
know about a new keystore? Also, once I have a second keystore, how do
I tell the de{*filter*} that I want to use it rather than the debug
keystore for debugging?
