Sergiy Radyakin <serjradyakin@gmail.com> reports that -graph pie- does not
allow the convenience option -scale()- which allows you to scale the size of
all the text, markers, line-widths, etc. on your graph simultaneously.

The option -scale()- is documented for -graph pie-, and all of the other
-graph- commands honor -scale()-.

Sergiy has indeed found a bug, and it will be fixed in a future update.

In the interim, note that Sergiy himself provided an easy workaround for those
wanting to use -scale()- with -graph pie-.  Just exclude the option -scale()-
from your -graph pie- command, then redraw the graph, adding the -scale()-
option to the -graph display- command.  For example,

    . graph pie, over(rep78)
    . graph display, scale(0.5)
