Scaling Groups?

I have no code for you, only a thought on the easiest way I could  

- calculate orig width / new width ratio of the meta group
- calculate orig height / new height ratio of the meta group
- I would scale the individual objects' height and width using the  
ratios above
- I would scale the locations of each object with the same ratios
- I would then place the new resized objects at their new locations

But you probably know all that. I was fun to type it out, tho.
