proof of concept
Replace the combobox framerate widget by a comboboxentry widget to allow the user to input custom framerates, in decimal (ex: 12, 12.0, 12.00, 29.97) or ratio (ex: 3000:1001) mode.
Brandon had some related work started in his rendering cleanup branches, if memory serves right. We had a nice debate on 2009-10-22 about the "it should parse decimal framerates, and also parse the handful of industry-standard decimal framerate approximations" (I can provide the chat log if anyone cares).
That day, I ended up writing a proof of concept python script illustrates what I mean (attached to this bug report), you just have to imagine a comboboxentry instead of the terminal staring at you.
