[Chameleon] scalehints

I think that you can use the scalezoom widget, which gives you the 
ability to step in and out at preset scales.  But there is nothing to 
cause the map to 'snap' to a set of scales when using other widgets such 
as zoomin, zoomout, zoom bounding box, etc.  If such a mechanism were 
implemented, I would think that it would be part of the map widget to 
enforce preset scales, but I am not sure what the best mechanism for 
implementing it would be.  If you really want to pursue this, I can 
follow up with you directly.
