Generally, window and pillar boxing happens automatically in order to match the signal's aspect ratio to the display. If you feed a 4:3 signal to a 16:9 display, you'll get pillars and if you feed 2.35 to the same display you'll get window boxing. Manually changing the size of these black areas to something else will distort the picture's aspect ratio and nobody
is looking for that
feature. Well... few are looking for that.
My post doesn't answer your question, I know. But it may explain why no one has answered yet.
