I believe that, with the current code in CVS, you can accomplish what  
you want to do (minus the current bug involving already-anamorphic  
source material) by setting your display size to 16:9 in the XF86Config  
file -- add "DisplaySize 375 210" (or some other measurement that's  
16:9, in millimeters) to the "Monitor" section.  Note that the actual  
size of the screen was not appropriate in my case, as it made the fonts  
much too small.
