We really just need to re-write all the snippets to draw with the
default CTM, and eliminate the snippets_normalize calls. This has been
the cause of way too much confusion too many times.

Any volunteer?

I think the simplest approach would be to simply remove the call to
snippets_normalize and then to change all the input numbers
(coordinates, font sizes, line widths, etc.) to be multiplied by a
factor of 100, say.
