scatter with dots?

Hi matplot-list,

drawing scatterplots with thousends of scatter dots (marker='o')
yields in bloated file sizes for vector-formats (ps, svg).
The reason for that is, that each marker circle ist made of a
large number of lines instead of a simple arc (0..360 degree) i.e.

Can this be patched easily? and btw what is the meaning of
the _newstyle attribute in the drawing methods?

For postscript output it would be a gould idea to declare the
markers as postscript macros.
