Ah. Okay, I was account for it, just not quite correctly ;) Doesn't seem like 
a big deal, I can make POV use whatever aspect ratio I want, regardless of 
image size.  If I'm reading that page right, the proper aspect ratio for 
'4:3' usage is actually 15:11, or, in other wrods as if I ran mplayer 
myfile.avi -vop scale 652:480 ? I ran the math, and the aspect I was telling 
POV was close (1.33) compared to 15:11 (1.36). I'll change it for future 
renders. If there is any error in any of the above statements, feel free to 
correct me ;)
