Hey,

I came across this GreenDroid library on the androiddev reddit and am
wondering if anyone's played with it yet -

Looks useful!  I wonder if I can make use of this on my current project.  I
had to create a custom grid view because the standard grid view doesn't
support headers.  Basically I need to display a sorted grid of data with
category headers.  For example, sorted chronologically "Today",
"Yesterday", "Last Week"..  Or sorted alphabetically by friend "Brian",
"Calin", "Sarah", etc.  I'm sorting my data using a TreeMap in my adapter,
and planning to have a separate view to represent a header.  Then override
thegetViewTypeCount() and getItemViewType() methods from ViewGroup.  Then
just draw the header view when I hit one and automatically move to next
line for the next non-header.
