Pulled, thanks Arnaldo!

There's still a few basic usability glitches that i've noticed:

- it's not clear how to zoom out, once zoomed in

- there's no help screen and no help line for people to see what can be
done on a given screen. While it's good that the intuitive things work
by default (arrow keys, escape, enter, etc.), there should also be additional
visual information about what can be done.

- i think double escape should exit, right now it stays at the 'are you sure'
