I dislike the boolean parameter, since it artificially limits what we
can support. I'm in favor of only exposing one (page) zoom as a starting
point, but leaving the door open to if/when we decide supporting both at
the same time (which WebCore already does), we can just add APIs to
handle text zoom.

This is one of the very few cases where we deviated from WebKitGTK+
API-wise, btw, because of a client requirement:
