Minimo is mostly build configuration, yes, as I understand it. A lot of the work I've seen checked in for Minimo has been focusing on things like making it possible to disable XUL support at build time, ifdef out image decoders and protocol handlers on a one-by-one basis, etc.

For zoom, I think we're aiming to fix the use of units in Gecko first (search for "units in Gecko" to find the bug; I don't have the number offhand). Then zoom should be pretty straightforward....
