I think this is a good idea, which has the usability benefit to mirror
what happens in many common browsers, and other common text editors.
I remember myself that I was struggling to find the binding to change
the font size when I was an Emacs beginner.

I have implemented this suggestion in the attached patch.

However, this will be an incompatible change, since this was
previously bound to scrolling up and down by close to a full screen.
I therefore moved that binding to the meta modifier and wrote a NEWS
item that explains how to get the old functionality back.

How does it look?

Best regards,
Stefan Kangas
