Koi Live Wallpaper v1.5

  - Update: Two new backgrounds!
  - Update: Simulated scrolling on some devices

This update also should include some minor bug fixes and improvements, but the main things are the two items up above.  The new backgrounds are courtesy of Kim Lathrop, one is an abstract and one is a beautiful backdrop of heartstones on sand.  :)

The simulated scrolling is something we're putting in place as a general case, so should be available in most of our products as they get updated going forward.  Basically, a lot of companies disable wallpaper scrolling on their home screens, and we get a lot of complaints about this.  It's not our fault but that's not how people read it.

So, we think we've worked out a reasonable way to detect this behavior, and are simulating the camera movement based on drag events.  It's not perfect but should mean you get to see the entire backdrop and it generally behaves sensibly in testing.  Hopefully folks consider it an improvement!
