Would it be possible for sabayon to detect if you have a standard or widescreen monitor at boot and then link the right artwork accordingly, maybe put it in the x-setup init. If not could there at least be a widescreen use flag on the ebuild?

Thanks, I look forward to 3.4!

Is the artwork not stretched for you?
