Yes we can.

Probably we have some other bug in the fix, but unfortunately I cannot 
confirm behavior you describe. For example if I request the icon for 
some pdf,java.txt files of size 100m then:
  - On HiDPI screen I get the native icon of size 64.
  - On LowDPI screen I get the native icon of size 32.
In both cases the user will get MRI, which will scale the native icon.

Best regards, Sergey.
