Why not?  I mean, sure, a nice consistent set of images would be better,
but what's the harm in supporting ones with different aspect ratios
correctly?  Like it or not, many plugin UIs have dramatically different
aspect ratios.  We might not want to scale in one dimension, but that
needs to be handled correctly anyway.

I doubt you can count the number of plugins with exactly a 16:9 aspect
ratio on one hand, and wouldn't be surprised if you don't need any
fingers at all ;)

If you want a width constraint, sure, 640 is reasonable.

Feel free ;)  I would prefer not having some mountainous "web framework"
for such a simple thing, though I don't particularly care either, as
long as it's not too mountainous.

Bikeshed away, I will spend my time working on the docs, and hopefully
some day actually on the bloody code again...
