I Have a monitor like this one. However, I have an All-In-Wonder
Radeon video card from 2003 that doubles the resolution so that
this monitor displays 320x200 in the 640x400 mode.

Hatari should keep the native resolutions of the ST so that future
hardware (or even SDL2 can handle this situation).

I have never liked the scan doubling feature (please don't make this
non-optional) in Hatari because it is not Hatari's job to do video processing.
This should be done by SDL2 (if it doesn't already support this), or done by
the operating system or extra hardware.
