In that case, may I beg, plead, appeal, ask, beseech you,
crave, entreat, implore, petition, pray, solicit, and supplicate
for a marquee zoom.  I find a virtual magnifying glass the most
useless zoom tool in the world, and the current previewer
drives me /insane/ by seemingly providing only that one mechanism
for zooming.  When I want to zoom, I almost invariably want to
marquee zoom; it is hard to imagine that others do not feel the same.
