Use Super+Scroll to Zoom

Bug Description

The new zoom feature is great, but I think that the Super+Scroll is superior than the Super+Plus and Super+Minus shortcuts we have now.

description: updated
summary: - Zoom in Gala: Win+Mouse scrolling should be supported by default
+ Use Super+Scroll to Zoom

This is currently blocked upstream by libmutter. So we actually *can't* implement this :(

@Cassidy James - I like the new summary. It meets the elementary HIG :)

@Daniel Fore - Too sad! I hope you'll find a workaround or at some time it's no longer blocked by libmutter...

I would suggest (assuming that the blockage can be overcome) that you keep both combinations. It would be useful to have a keyboard only trigger for zoom mode *as well as* the more intuitive [Super]+scroll trigger (and possibly a mouse only trigger; see bug #1043677).

I found a work around: Use xbindkeys to tie Super+Mouse to send the right keys to Gala.

Is this still blocked in Mutter?
