why not use the mousewheel to change the "size" of images displayed in the VSE Image preview window?

Hi Peter, I disagree because it's inconsistent with what gets saved to
file in a render (thats what render settings are for). If we want
quick proxies that could be made into a percentage numbutton in the
viewer's header or similar location, not overusing the render settings
which are meant for scaling the output. I think this is loosing one
functionality in exchange for another one. Why can't we have both? :)
