We have a collaborator who is having problems with an Apple "Magic mouse" where he's always "accidentally zooming way in or out" when he touches the mouse in a certain way. I am wondering whether it would be possible to change the zoom mouse binding to be something like shift-middle-scroll-wheel rather than just middle-scroll-wheel (and a scroll wheel doesn't actually exist on an apple Magic Mouse but it's emulated when you touch it in a certain way)... it would be super spiffy if this not require a rebuild, but I suspect it probably will...

FYI...I (Mark Miller) run into this often (along with a vareity of other idiosyncratic Mac behavior) and just live with it.
