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 ?
