Excuse me for jumping in, but maybe I've missed something in the 
"discussion"; I'm not really sure I understand what you are trying to 

a) Do you know the ratio you want to end up with before you start cropping?

b) Or, do you want to crop an area you like, and end up with whatever that 
ratio happens to be, and be able to see it and take note of it (and probably 
use that value later)?

If a), then I don't follow why setting the exact ratio in the tool is 
difficult to do. It ensures the crop will be exactly what you want, without 
having to watch the current ratio and stop dragging at just the right spot.

If b), then I agree that 2.4 does not show the ratio information, as far as 
I can see.
