Oh.  I actually had to look that up in the docs-- it's been ages since I read
those sections. (I rarely if ever think about right, up etc). Just to clarify, I
always use AND specify
          right  x*image_width/image_height

Honestly, I thought that was the default(!). But I see that 4/3*x or <1.33,0,0>
is the real one. I can't recall when I started using one vs. the other-- it
was in the dim and murky past!

Thanks for the clarification.
