Yes, I thought about that but for people who use the binary packages, it
won't matter (except now they prefer our bugs when it uses A4 by mistake).
I must say, I read a paper describing why the European sizes (A4, etc.) are
they way they are, and they are MUCH more sensible than our sizes. The key
point is that if you take a standard size and cut it into two parts by
halving the long size, then the aspect ratio does not change. That requires
that the aspect ratio be the square root of 2. Truly very nice.
