Ok, I stumbled across various window manager implementations how
they handle aspect ratio hints, and got inspired how fluxbox
does it. Hence I implemented an algorithm pretty much similiar
to that one found in fluxbox and ask that people recheck if it
works for them correctly. To me it works correct, having tested
it with mplayer.
