Right, I definitely support allowing a single number defining the
ratio, just as MQ does, precisely for consistency on that front.  But
it's not very easy to use - I don't think most authors will
intuitively recognize that 1.77 corresponds to 16:9 - so I'd also like
a two-number version.  The question is just if we only need integers,
or if we need numbers for intellectual-compat.
