 I don't know what is better if to scale, as I suggested, which is
 different behavior from all the other modules (so it might be better to
 call it `scale`), or if it is better to overwrite the size, as you suggest
 and consequently make it potentially harder for the user (symbols in
 d.vect behave the same but they have more similar sizes).

 For now, I suggest to skip this issue.
