Well, another option would be to completely separate the icon positions
at different resolutions, because you may want to have a different
layout for a 640x480 screen size, than you have for widths over 1000. I
already toyed with this idea and came up with a patch (not yet
published) that modifies the get-stored-icon-position and
icon-position-changed code act for desktop icon containers, i.e. it
would include the icon positions in the metadata keys.

IIRC there is also a bug report about changing font sizes which leads to
overlapped icons because the icon positions are fixed and the font
rectangles overlap the adjactent icons.
