How to do Proportional Capture

I am collecting several screenshots that will need to be scaled to a specific size. I'd like to capture the proportions rather than a fixed size. Rather than 500px by 250px I'd like 2:1 so that I am constrained in my selection. Is this possible? (I know I can change and fiddle with this later, but it would be great to simply capture in this ratio.)

I assume that the Ctrl and Shift + drag combos work on the basis that the x axis is defined as a fixed percentage of y.  If that's the case, then allowing the user to define the relationship, and then using that in the existing code should be another case of low hanging fruit.

But again, that's no guarantee......
