Understood.  And if you don't have any better options, then this is clearly 
much better than the alternatives.  ;-)

It depends on your OS.  On MacOS X, you can turn on "Universal Access", and 
then by default you can use <option><command><equals/plus> to zoom in, and 
<option><command><minus/underbar> to zoom back out, as well as holding down 
the <control> key and using the mouse ball or scroll wheel to scroll up or 
down.  There are lots of other Universal Access features you can turn on, 
but the zoom function is the only one I use.

I know that somewhat similar features are available on some other platforms, 
but I don't know enough about them to tell you how to use them.
