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.
