Yes, that might be an issue ... however, I'm also not sure how to deal
with that best, so I think we should simply wait for the next release
and see how the users react.

I think it currently still makes sense to have a knob to control the
size of the borders and the pre-zooming in software that still takes
place. We might want to rework this one day (so it's easier to use for
example) - but then we should get rid of the SDL1 support first, since
the code is very interweaved with that. So I'd rather postpone this to
a way later point in time.
