FWIW, Paul, this works great for me: I just got a Dell 2405FPW 16:10
display that I use alongside my old 5:4 1280x1024 displays, and without
this, Myth would expand every recording playback to full screen.  With
your patch, both 16:9 and 4:3 recordings are letterboxed to the right
aspect ratio.

Commit!  Commit! :)
