Resolution selection would be a nice bonus feature, I have worries that allowing a slew of different resolutions will introduce issues we don't yet foresee but they are based on nothing but cynicism. The more I am thinking about it, I feel strongly that an installer "style-guide" based on a certain size is inherently flawed. Both of these mask the underlying design issue though which is that the fields are not flexible enough to handle more than X characters.
Think about why newspapers and magazines write articles in columns. Because it's easier to process the information in that format. It's inconvenient, both technically and mentally to be scrolling sideways too much. So I would say such a style guide is imperative.
