I talked a bit with some guys working on the mac port and:
1 - WebCore doesn't allow to have full-page zoom and text-only zoom at the same
2 - They kept two separate sets of APIs for the two modes for backward

So I will modify the patch to have a single set of function and a
full-page-zoom property (suggestions for better names?)
