Here's a funny little feature.  [G] states, "Weights are ignored when
the mlabel() option is specified." So

scatter y x  [fw=sample], ms(oh) mlab(sample) mlabpos(c)

made a graph with symbols all the same size.  

The logic isn't obvious, as the symbols and labels can be overlaid quite
easily ...

scatter y x  [fw=sample], ms(oh) mcol(gs12) legend(off) || scatter y x,
ms(i) mlab(sample) mlabpos(c) mlabsize(tiny) mlabcol(gs6)
