A minor change that's been live for a while but just now documented
properly: category images that come down through the API are available
in three sizes.

- 32 x 32 pixels (this is the default)
- 64 x 64 pixels (this is what you might want to use for iPhone 4's
Retina Display and other high resolution devices)
- 256 x 256 pixels

By default, the API methods return the 32px image in this format:
http://foursquare.com/img/categories/food/coffeeshop.png

To get a different size, simply specify a different suffix:
http://foursquare.com/img/categories/food/coffeeshop_64.png
http://foursquare.com/img/categories/food/coffeeshop_256.png

Excellent! They look great!

How about badges? I know there are _big.png versions of the badges,
but they are 300x300. Any chance of high res versions of the smaller
icons?

Thanks again!
