I am actually unsure if the Zoom tool really should be a tool. It is the
only tool that does not affect the image, but the display of the image
(the measure-tool at least lets you create guides).

At least for me it is an annoyance: I never really use it and if I use
it I am annoyed that it does not switch back to the previously used

I tend to think that it should be moved to the display of the image to
make it easier to fluently change the view/zoom on the image without
interrupting the current workflow.
