How about running your app under 'screen', then fire up a second
gnome-terminal and attach to it with 'screen -x'. Zoom in as desired
with regular control-+ sequences. Then minimize and keep it lurking.
When user wants to show big text, temporarily switches to the hidden
screen and then back again.
Probably too contrived? Not "infinite", though.
