And then do a calculation to figure out what to tell POV, yes.  I've used 
enough 2D and 3D programs, and none works like this, it's completely 
counter-intuitive.  All programs I've seen automatically assume you are 
working with square pixels unless you specifically check or uncheck a 
certain option, IMO it should be the same for POV.
