If the guest agent isn't installed, it will just scale up, like VNC.

I am not aware of "jumps between a mere 3 guest resolutions"

What's the difference? if the guest is not able to resize, it will
scale. The only thing it won't keep aspect ratio. But I think this
should be solved in spice-gtk instead, and not with complicated gtk
resize tricks.
