Responsive 'Background Image' Resizing

Webflow currently serves smaller images when sites are viewed on smaller devices. This is great for pageload (duh)

However, i've found myself designing sites that rely on background images a lot more, and it would be great to see these not impacting pageload so much! 

I don't have a coding background so i have no idea how hard this would be to implement, but if it's easy, i would appreciate it!

Please re-categorize if i've put this in the wrong place, and thanks in advance!

    This seems like a no brainer. Just ran some speed checks on my Google Analytics account and it's crushing my mobile load times having larger resolution backgrounds for desktop devices. Come on Webflow!
