Hi Kieren,
     Thanks for the scan.  If you look closely, however, you'll see that 
it is stretched vertically-- not in a literal, Finale-like way, but in an 
elegant way that keeps the middle of each brace about the same width 
(about 3 pixels across) in your PNG.  Additionally, the thick part of the 
curve in the larger brace is less wide to help match the weight of the 
smaller brace.
     I submitted another example to try to show this more clearly.  The 
reference is a Debussy score (1st prelude of the 2nd book).  I guess 
"stretched vertically" is a bit vague; I guess what I'm seeing is that 
as braces get larger, they are less thick than a perfectly scaled 
version of the smaller brace.

Does that make sense?
