Scatter plot legend

Even better would be to let the legend be whatever size it needs to
be independent of the scale of the axes. I posted earlier on this
regarding units.

Sorry, I won't have time to implement this myself.

Hello,

I'm still interested in having a polygon symbol in the legend for a
scatter plot. I've made some changes to the suggestion of Manuel Metz to
make the legend symbol look better (the code-fragment from legend.py is
below). But when resizing the window, the symbol gets stretched and
placed in a bad location; it appears that the symbol is stretched and
scaled in the same manner as the legend box as a whole, while I think it
would look better if the symbol maintained the same size and aspect
ratio, but merely moved to the appropriate location within the resized
legend.

I would like to add this functionality, but I need some help to
understand the required transformations or scaling to make it look good.
Perhaps someone with a better understanding could provide some help?
