I'm not entirely sure what you mean with “marquee zoom”, sorry … but I 
have several zoom steps that do mostly what I what. I kind of miss a 
even-one-step-larger-zoom, but after Stefan's message, I fear that the 
rendering will take some days, so it's not too important …
And – I like the magnifying glass. Normally I don't use such kind of 
tools, but it comes in often suprisingly handy …
