Post iBooks/Stanza/PDFReaderLite: Zooming pdfs in landscape mode

Hello!
Been a happy owner of an iPod touch 4g for the last few weeks!
Have tried Stanza, iBooks and PDF Reader lite for reading pdfs.

Face this issue:
- In landscape mode, - which is almost always required with pdfs, i have to zoom to get a comfortable font size.
- But none of the above apps do it automatically.
- In stanza: pinch and drag for every page.
- In iBooks: Double tap in page center. Doesn't work on all pdfs though - have to use pinch and drag for such.
- In pdf reader lite: "+", "-" buttons or pinch and drag.
- The iBooks option seems the best, involving the least effort.

Are there any other alternatives with these readers? Surprising that stanza, with its multiple features doesn't have an easy option or am i missing something?

Ideal would be a configurable option which automatically zooms the page to the text margins in landscape mode, and which is also persistent for each page. Some of the paid apps seem to have this.
