Zooming is interesting and since Athens canvas is opening the vectorial space we should definitively 
try. I have serious doubt that this can of modeling will go anyway. It may be a fun master or bachelor topics.
Now I would like to be able to build the same with Pharo: 
	clean event
	nice support for zoom

and we are getting closer and closer.
