One idea we've been kicking around is using the screens capability, possibly in
combination with lowered resolution, to give the panning capability at lower
effective magnification that we currently see in MS Magnifier and Macntosh
CloseView.  Make your screen resolution 640x480 and have four of them  that
slide (not pop) when the mouse moves to the edge of the screen.  Also look at
200% magnification...

It doesn't provide what all users need, but it does a lot for a lot of users...
