 Are there any examples of how to use android.permission.GET_ACCOUNTS ?
Or is this an unimplimented api? I found this site; 

Though I haven't been able to get anything to work. I believe JBQ said
it was a private api - but I'm not sure why the permission is listed
on the dev reference?

 We unfortunately left most of the permission string constants in the SDK,
even for ones protecting private APIs.  So something being there doesn't
mean there is an API for it.

questions should be posted on public forums, where I and others can see and
answer them.
