The shape of symbols in some scatter plots.

I occasionally use the scatter() function to make light curves of astronomical targets. The scale of the x-axis is often given in days with a range of 0.54 - 0.68 days. The y-axis is in counts. This type of data produces unusual scatter plots with the blue symbols being very elongated ovals (in the x-direction).

Are there plans to change this behavior - maybe by drawing the symbols in device space instead of data or user space?
