How do I intelligently stretch my desktop wallpaper in Windows?

Windows 2000/XP has three options for setting desktop wallpaper: Center, Tile, and Stretch. Unfortunately, these are all kinda dumb. If I want to set a photo from my digital camera as my wallpaper, I'm stuck with a bad fit (Center), repeating images (Tile), or an incorrect aspect ratio (Stretch). Is there any third-party utility that will intelligently resize my desktop wallpaper?

In other words, I want it to fill the screen without changing the aspect ratio. Any excess on the sides would just be cut off; either the very top/bottom or left/right, depending on its orientation. This seems like a simple hack, but I can't find any utility that does it.
