Hence my reason for fixing width and calculating height (no widescreen
TVs in the house yet). :)  I can see how the other way around would
be good though for widescreen TVs.  Fixing it to allow either would
be pretty easy though, and I could get rid of the transcodepreserveaspect
setting also.  I put this on my TODO list to add after 0.19 is out,
I already have it in my head how to add it.
