Actually Freehand 8 does just this. Space is for panning (Mac mouses have
only one button so you cannot put that to mousebutton 2 :)

But presing shift _and_ Option (used often in Mac like Alt in PC) toggles
zoom-in with cursor turning to a hourglass  ->   ==-(+) 

Pressing space-option-command (command is usually equiv. to Ctrl on mac)
does the opposite, zoom out, cursor is  ==-(-)

It makes a lot of sense, speeds up the work.

I can make some more cursors if people think this is ok to implement before
1.2 ?
