I think that was what the renderer did originally, but nowadays it
also groups points within configured distance. Unfortunately it always
tries to draw a circle around the clustered point with original
symbols. If we introduced few rendering options, it would be more
- draw just the clustered symbol for the whole group
- scale the clustered symbol depending on the number of points inside
