Aspect Ratio in Cropping

Is there any picture editing program which allows the aspect ratio of the crop function to be set to maintain a fixed figure?
Seems to me that cropping is one of the best features of digital photography but getting pics with borders showing, unless much time is spent calculating the aspect ratio, is a pain. Most programs will 'maintain aspect ratio' when resizing but not cropping.

Paint Shop Pro 8 will do this. When you select the cropping tool there is a presets drop down. I have one set to 4:3 and no matter what size I make the cropping rectangle, it always remains 4:3. This is great for cropping for video.
