I can imagine webpage which uses some Javascript to append information
about resolution to the request as some parameter. Then you could use
it, but it does not make too much sense. What if some people use your
page through caching proxy, which serves it to a few guys without
refetching it (yes, you can forbid caching). What if someone dynamically
changes resolution (as I do with Ctrl-Alt-+ working on my XWindows
Linux)? What if the client disables JavaScript?
