I generally let the composition of the final image dictate the aspect ratio. Since I generally don't shoot with a specific output in mind, when shooting with most of my m4/3 cameras, I shoot at 4/3 and crop later.

The GH1 and its multi-aspect ratio camera forces me to contemporaneously consider aspect-ratio with composition, though my general rule-of-thumb is landscape-orientation shoot 3:2 and portrait-orientation shoot 4:3. I'll still usually crop in post, but my rule-of-thumb usually gives me the pixels I need for the composition and desired output.
