Never having done a work presentation on your computer right on your display, 
to a bunch of people standing a few meters away? I have wished a lot of times

resolution is one solution, but not my favourite...

Will they? Will there be independent zooming of the content views, without 
enlarging the toolbars and other helper widgets?
