Ah, I'll take a look at that.  Hadn't occurred to me they'd be different.

Ah, but that's not what I want it to do!  Mostly, anyway.  What I want 
to do is have it pre-zoomed
to the maximum size, and then use the 'zoom' command to actually move 
between images.

For example, say I have a forest scene, and instead of starting all the 
way out (looking at the
entire forest), it starts all the way in, say, looking at one tree.

 Then, the 'zoom' option controls successive images; i.e., it's summer, 
but zooming in will
gradually take you into winter, on the same tree..  Thus instead of 
zooming resolution, I'm
zooming time...

 Actually, I'd love to be able to do *both*, for example, using 
shift-zoom for 'time' and normal
zoom for.. well, zoom.. :}

Does that make any more sense?
