I have a patch that implements such an option, and I have been using it
without problems for more than one year.  I refrained from submitting it
for adding to Emacs CVS due to the feature freeze.  During this time
users contacted me privately asking me to send them my patch.

So now I see that not including it to the next release would be a big
mistake.  More and more people have wide-screen monitors, and hardwiring
the current default is very annoying for them.

I could submit my patch to emacs-devel for review.
