Native Livecode Pinch and Zoom

Should we also consider adding aomething like a "zoomable" property for 
images?

Sure, we can do it in script, but it's non-trivial and most get it 
wrong, e.g.:
<http://lessons.livecode.com/m/4069/l/11509-how-do-i-implement-a-multi-touch-pinch-motion>

..where the zoom is based around the centerpoint of the image rather 
than the touch location.  That makes it impossible to zoom in to see 
details in a corner of an image, for example.

There are improved versions in the forums, but given the widespread use 
of pinch-to-zoom and and efforts underway to expand the user base to 
better meet new user expectations, would it be possible to turn that 
work into a property setting?

Interactive wipe transitions would also be valuable, arguably more so, 
but I recognize that's a more complicated matter and I'm already 
straying OT here....
