Default ViewPortIn and ViewPortOut in 302.07

I'm trying to adapt my config to the new settings, yet I fail to grasp exactly how to do it.

what I want pre-302.07:
Option         "FlatPanelProperties" "Scaling = aspect-scaled"
what 302.07 wants me to write:
nvidia-settings --assign CurrentMetaMode="DFP-0: 1920x1200 { ViewPortIn=1280x1024, ViewPortOut=1500x1200+210+0}"
Ok, so how do I do that for ALL the non 16:10 resolutions WITHOUT creating a new MetaMode for EACH AND EVERY possible resolution? ( running through nvidia-settings helps me to avoid a X11 restart for every test, wicked )

Also, I see that I can use panning to do some sort of downscaling things ( like in Windows: ) but without the clock/freqs messing around like
nvidia-settings --assign CurrentMetaMode="DFP-0: 1920x1200 { ViewPortIn=2560x1600}"
would yield me a 2560x1600 image scaled to the native panel resolution of 1920x1200, great, BUT while the image and apps can use all the screen space my mouse is LIMITED to a upper left 1920x1200 rectangle and I can't reach the lower right corner
