Enable zoom at level 2.0 in stable branches (S2_6 & S3_0)
It's better to partially enable gtk3- and gtk3.22-client zoom feature than keep it completely disabled. It should heva no "partial pixel" problems when zoom level is 2.0, so enable zoom feature that allows switching between zoom levels 1.0 and 2.0.

I am inclined to get this in in beta1 already.
In my testing, it seems like beta quality already, apart from bug #685277 which I'm looking at now; but even if I don't get a quick fix for most of that, I'd be happy to release with that as a known issue ("don't use city full bar") and bug #685279 too.
Or is there some reason this isn't ready? I'm running with it at the moment, FWIW.
I'd like to know what else is wrong with full zoom...

I've now got a proposed fix for that (city full bar).
I intend for this patch (zoom enable) to go in 2.6.0-beta1, unless someone tells me it's a terribly bad idea.
One weakness that occurs to me is that I don't think we've tested a Windows msys1 Gtk3 build with zoom enabled, and the Cairo in use is still probably quite elderly. However, I think most of the zoom code is compiled in / activated regardless, and so the biggest risk is that enabling zoom x2 turns out not to work, not that the default x1 zoom is also broken? If so, I think that's an acceptable risk for a beta.
