The current state of affairs is:
1. Video playback should handle the various aspect ratio modes
properly, possibly requiring your assistance through the "w" key
2. The GUI assumes your display is 4:3 and stretches everything
horizontally if it's not.
If you're talking about doing something about #2, more power to you,
but I think you're likely to hit problems when you encounter themes.
You shouldn't need a setting for this either... take a look at how
video playback detects the display aspect ratio.
My simple solution was to switch to a theme that doesn't have buttons
that are supposed to be round (like Blue does :-) )
