How do you set the 'target' object? Is it the object under the mouse
pointer, or does it have to be selected?
If it's the object under the pointer, what happens when you try to zoom to

Well In Modo demo it's like butter. It wont go through mesh unless
it's target is in view far past other mesh. Otherwise it will stop at
the mesh even if you keep trying to zoom past. The speed does not
change at all. It is all very smooth.
It does not depend on a set plane. Now that said I am sure they have
collision detection in the mouse placement. As another feature in the
tool set is like the new re-topo tool but can be adjusted around a
mesh instead of just in view z-depth.
