3D manipulation with gamepad in V6

I have bought myself a Logitech Dual Action gamepad as recommended in 
tutorial/IntroductionToManipulate, and I am very pleased with how flexibly 
it allows me to control Manipulate. This will make manipulation much easier.

Out of curiosity I tried using the gamepad to manipulate a plain 3D graphic, 
where normally you would use the l.h. mouse button (optionally with Ctrl or 
Shift) to rotate/zoom/translate the graphic. I found that I could rotate the 
graphic by using the l.h. gamepad joystick, but I couldn't find any way to 
zoom or translate the graphic using the gamepad. Does anybody know how to do 
this, or it is not implemented?
