I have updated a snapshot to CTAN, as part of xpackages. You can

the stuff that is implemented (a) should work properly and (b) should
have a reasonable interface. However, until there is a bit more testing,
bugs/changes may happen.

Scaling here means 'stretching the content of the box', i.e.
graphic(s/x)'s \scalebox and \resizebox.
