The current default behaviour means that if you want to render someone elses 
scene for your desktop wallpaper or to print out, you have to search through 
their code for the right camera block and make some changes, I can't even 
remember the number of times I have had to search through and put in some 
"image_width/image_height" statement.  Is this really the best thing for the 
default behaviour?  IMO the default behaviour should mean the least work for 
what is most common, ie if you actually *want* non-square pixels you should 
have to go and fiddle with the code.
