#' Size scale.

#' @param range a numeric vector of length 2 that specifies the minimum and
#' maximum size of the plotting symbol after transformation.
#' @examples

#' (p <- qplot(mpg, cyl, data=mtcars, size=cyl))
#' p + scale_size("cylinders")
#' p + scale_size("number\nof\ncylinders")
#'
#' p + scale_size(range = c(0, 10))
#' p + scale_size(range = c(1, 2))

#' # Map area, instead of width/radius
#' # Perceptually, this is a little better
#' p + scale_size_area()
#' p + scale_size_area(max_size = 25)

#' # Also works with factors, but not a terribly good

#' qplot(mpg, cyl, data=mtcars, size=factor(cyl))

#' Scale area instead of radius, for size.
#'
#' When \code{scale_size_area} is used, the default behavior is to scale the
#' area of points to be proportional to the value.
#'
#' Note that this controls the size scale, so it will also control
#' the thickness of lines. Line thickness will be proportional to the square
#' root of the value, which is probably undesirable in most cases.
#'
#' @param ... Other arguments passed on to \code{\link{continuous_scale}}
#' to control name, limits, breaks, labels and so forth.
#' @param max_size Size of largest points.
#' @export
