This is currently a work in progress. There should be support for
this in matplotlib CVS. Eg you can call

  manager.set_canvas_size(width, height)

where manager is a backend "FigureManager" instance.

You can access this from pylab with

manager = get_current_fig_manager()

The API for this is still under discussion and subject to change, and
only implemented for GTK* currently, I believe.
