4:3 was just an example; I said to use what the user requests.
Directly using monitoraspect could be bad:

1) mencoder has no monitoraspect.

2) Filters are not supposed to depend on outside global vars!!!!!!!!!!

3) The user could have other filters after expand, making it incorrect
   to just assume desired output aspect = monitor aspect.
