It would be nice to keep the "letterboxing" code around (with some fixes). In some cases I prefer a pixel-perfect image with borders arund it, rather than scaling and stretching the picture to fit the panel no matter what.

I understand others may disagree with this so maybe make it a setting somewhere.

The only reason I see for maintaining either is running old apps that wouldn't support my native display resolution. Otherwise, why would we use non-native modes anyway?
