Maximum size of a canvas?

Hi Jeff,

interesting idea although I am not sure in which way this improves 
things. I am already scaling the canvas node if it is bigger than 
necessary (due to previous zoom, works like supersampling then) or 
smaller than necessary (if the maximum size is reached but I need to 
present the content bigger than that).

Looks as if the scaling of the canvas and the scaling of the 
graphicscontext might both be applied at the same time - unless one is 
simply a shortcut to the other. I have to experiment on this one.
