Pointless?

To be honest I really don't see the point of multi-sized icon arrangements. However, once this becomes standard across most OSs, like most UI 'innovations', I'm sure I'll look back and wonder how the hell I managed without icons of varying sizes

Usually I look back on my GUI 'innovations', and wonder how the hell they ever took off in the first place...
