#661 directions for zooming inconsistent


In FM 0.9.0 beta 18 I found the usage of arrow keys and mouse wheel directions for zooming inconsistent.

Alt-Up is for zooming out
Alt-Down is for zooming in

(as was in 0.8.1) New in 0.9.0b18 is

Ctrl-Mousewheel Up is for zooming in,
Ctrl-Mousewheel Down is for zooming out.

I would consider it more intuitive to have the same directions for zooming in both cases. My suggestion would be to flip arrow keys in combination with Alt.
