Keep stack proportions when resizing

I had a similar request from a client a few years ago.  We couldn't find 
any apps from the 21st century that do that, so instead we opted for 
what we see in apps from Apple and many others:

We leave the user in control of their desired window size, and adjust 
our media in the content region proportionately, with a dark gray 
background filling in any edge gaps.

Bonus that it's also super easy to implement.
