Sadly not. I'm not quite sure what the point of the new mode in CVS is? It appears (at least on my system) to only offer a mode to stretch the picture to full height, but without altering the width.
So for the funny PAL DVB broadcasts I now see black bars left and right, and everyone is stretched tall and thin... The code doesn't seem to change the width and effectively zoom into the center of the black rectangle. Is this intended behaviour? Happy to try and dig in and add a third mode, but I wasn't sure if this other mode was being used by someone else at the moment?
