A larger font size is probably a bad idea, since it will likely force
inconvenient pagebreaks in the middle of some blocks of symbols.  (Not to
mention, it will make an already large pagecount even bigger, which makes
flipping through them less efficient.)

I hadn't realized at first that symbols-letter.pdf will remain on CTAN. 
I'll just get it from there and keep it locally.
