Controlling the plugin's configuration - yes, that seems reasonable, but I
think that it's something for the xine-lib front end. I don't see any need
for changing the aspect ratio unless the plugin needs to be able to handle
displays other than 4:3, and even then you're likely to want to set it once
and to forget about it.

Windowed mode is a different matter, but that's likely to be a
dynamically-alterable aspect ratio anyway. Given this, aspect ratio
information should come from the output window, rather than being a
user-configurable option.

AFD support aside (Reinhard - anything to test?), shouldn't that Just Happen
