So, I am not too excited about 1.1 [or 2^(1/8) for that matter], because
it gives nearly the previous experience - in the usual ranges, it mostly
falls back to the +-5% step.

I've just pushed a change that makes it 2^(1/6) - ie. 6 steps to get
double / half zoom:


The values look like this:

Zoom out: 100, 110, 125, 140, 160, 180, 200
Zoom in : 100, 90, 80, 70, 60, 55, 50

Looks good?

So, I am afraid this would lead to another problems - like what is the
good autorepeat timeout setting, so I'd prefer not to introduce that ;-)
