Trueing a Wheel that is Slightly out of Round?

I just got for father's day the Park Tool high end Trueing stand from my son (great gift, greater son!). Of course I immediately starting trueing every wheel in sight, even invited the neighbors to bring over their wheels too!

My question is, I noticed that after getting the wheels trued side to side, some wheels/rims appearred to be slightly out of round. Is there a simple way to get the rim round again? Does it matter, will the flex in the tire compensate for this or should I be concerned riding a rim that is not perfectly round. I never really thought to much about it until I went crazy trueing.
