My app works more like a browser, so when I "go back", I expect the same 
screen layout again (even though I have to reconstruct the screen 
again).  With a ListView, this cannot be done as the #scrollTo method 
only shows an item.  It doesn't remember however if that item was 
somewhere in the middle, top or bottom.  It's just convenient if it was 
in the same spot, as the user might expect it there.  Just like I expect 
my browser to go back to the same spot helps me a bit (eg: I clicked the 
link at the bottom of the screen somewhere, and there was something else 
interesting to the left of it -- that fails if it is now somewhere else).
