I agree, = should also work as a Zoom In key. I really like the keyboard 
"nationalisation" thing. I use a Dvorak keymap myself (on a Qwerty keyboard, 
but that's beside the point) which means that some key combinations get 
rather cumbersome without some form of remapping (for example, the z is 
located underneath the / key. As my right hand is on the mouse when drawing, 
I need to move my left hand to the righthand side of the keyboard to be able 
to do right-control-z. Being able to remap it to Ctrl-; would be very nice, 
then I could just use the normal Qwerty Ctrl-z keycombo again.
