Have you tried the gthumb catalog _directory_ view.
http://xsu.sf.net/gthumb-view.png - You can browse your pics, and use
the nautilus zoom widget to zoom in and out.
I think that this is a much better solution. Using custom directory
views instead of hacking odd zoom features into nautilus.

Yeah, but gedit is a much more ideal way to view text files, and it has
an mdi and uses the same instance. Opening files in a new window
drastically reduces user confusion don't forget.
