[squeak-dev] #tinyDisplay, low-ppi, or 75% scale factor

Note that "tiny display" is rather misleading. This is about low-ppi displays. If it is actually tiny, say below 6 inches, then both mouse and touch input would be rather troublesome.

On a smaller display, you would need larger insets to actually hit something, regardless of low or high ppi.

It looks like one could rather conveniently program on a 640x480 display with this.

Hi all --

Christoph (ct) suggested scale factors below 100%. Since there already is the #tinyDisplay preference, I sketched a 75% scale using our smallest, pre-rendered "Bitmap DejaVu Sans".

Please find attached a changeset and a screenshot. Looks good. It's about 71%, given that 100% is 10.5pt, 96.0 ppi, and 14px height.
