[vtkusers] 2D Zooming

Did you try changing the Dolly distance on the camera associated with the
renderer? This will do what you want. Rather than rendering the image
larger in the mapping phase, this "zooms" in on the final rendered image.
You could even do this before any display is made, to knock out any
intermediate changes in the render-window image.
