how to enable compiz desktop zoom in 12.04 without using CCSM?

view story

http://askubuntu.com – Esteemed Ubuntu 12.04 users and devs, I assume compiz has a desktop zoom plugin built into 12.04. I used it in 11.04 & 11.10 with CCSM anyway. Now in 12.04 i want to enable and customise this without using CompizConfig Settings Manager (CCSM) anymore*. Is it possible? I see gconf can adjust many compiz settings as hinted by this post: how can I enable wobbly windows without using CCSM -but couldn't see the desktop zoom options when poking around gconf. *leaning from 11.04 & 11.10 and intent on maintaining maximum stability - i'm reluctant to install/use CCSM. Look forward to you (HowTos)
