[Blender] Watch your mouse when using the Dolly Zoom!

In the Blender tutorial that I'm currently following, I just came across the Dolly Zoom, particularly useful when we have reached the maximum zoom and we need to go further. As explained in the documentation, the hotkey is Ctrl - Shift - Middle Mouse Button1.

Dumb mode activated: But the thing that took me five minutes to understand is that it simply zooms towards the position of your mouse cursor!
