Not yet another zoom mode...

Is there any way we can work out which modes are relevant at any time
given the source material and the output device aspect ratios and omit
the others in the mode cycle?

For example, I use a 4:3 monitor for output. Our TV stations broadcast
everything in 16:9; they add black bars on the left & right to pad 4:3
source material to 16:9. Therefore the only useful modes to me are
"16:9" (the default) and "16:9 Zoom". Anything else stretches and/or
crops the picture, which is unwanted.

Alternatively a configuration page to disable unwanted modes.
