is certainly an issue - the perspective tool would really benefit from
having an option to automatically preserve the x/y aspect ratio (much like
scaling already does), though
exactly how it would work mathematically I don't know. I've found that
if you note the [1,1] and [2,2] numbers in the transformation matrix you
can do a manual rescale using those values as your X and Y scalars and it
really helps, but it's not exact since it doesn't take rotations into account.
Numbers may not lie, but neither do they tell the whole truth.
