Charlie added support for this to MLT's abstract consumer through the use of a 
property named "profile" which takes one of the following values:
dv, dv_wide, square_wide, square, vcd, cvd, svcd_wide, svcd

I do not know what is required of kdenlive.

The framework supplies display and pixel aspect ratio information to 
the "services" (MLT jargon). The transition_composite and filter_rescale 
services, which kdenlive implictly uses, coordinate to work out the right 
thing (usually) to do to make things look correct.
