This seems like a reasonable name then. Another thing I think we
should at least discuss is that this API prevents having both a text
zoom and a full-page zoom concurrently. This is something that the C
API allows.

It seems that internally text and page zoom factors are per-frame
decisions, not per WebView. My guess is that this is why it doesn't
hang off of Settings.h. The more I look at this API, the less I see
any reason to deviate from the C API here.

What's wrong with this?
