The comment says "entirely ad-hoc" and I didn't see a particular reason
why the lower half should be nonlinear in relsize while the upper half
is linear in 1/relsize.  So I opted for the "more esthetic" symmetrical
function.  :-)

I don't have a strong opinion for either relsize or relsize^2.  So
please add " * relsize" or " / relsize" as appropriate before you apply
(if you intend to apply).
