I can do that if it is really what we want. It's not very problematic.
The biggest problem is how to explain the average user the difference
no peak meter == save energy
normal peak meter == waste a little energy
precise peak meter == waste a little more energy

And I must admit that I didn't do any measurements wether all this
energy wasting topic is relevant at all.

Thanks to Andreas Zwirtes there already is the patch for dBfs display,
which includes scaling (alias 'zooming') the meter:
