Do you mean something like this?

                      format = self.img_fmt,
                      supersample = True,
                      raytrace = self.raytrace,
                      raytraceWait = True,
                      raytracePreview = False,
                      hideDialogs = False,
                      raiseWindow = False,
                      statusMessages = False,
		      task = self.task,
		      width = 2000,
		      height = 2000

With the currently distributed code it is not possible without editing
the Python code.  However, it would be fairly easy to enable alternative
resolutions in the Movie Recorder's Frame Options if supersampling or
raytracing were enabled.

For the Python programmers out there, to hardcode in an alternative
resolution, edit MovieRecorder/RecorderHandler.py, and change the
arguments to the saveImage call to turn on supersampling or raytracing,
and add arguments to set the width and height (eg., width=2000,
