I specify an image aspect ratio, nowhere have I specifically said I want 
non-square pixels.  IMO you should specifically have to say you want 
non-square pixels, because it's not a common requirement.

Agreed.

SO you still expect me to trawl through all the scene files, looking for the 
camera block that is actually the active one, then calculate what image 
dimensions I should tell POV I want, just to get an image with square 
pixels?  That doesn't sound too ideal to me, *especially* when most of the 
time you do want square pixels.
