```Code below breaks graph into pieces and inset GraphPlots of those
piece into another GraphPlot. I use explicit list of coordinates for
all GraphPlots, and would like the scale to be uniform across all of
them. Can anyone suggest a good way to do it? IE, every piece in the
second picture should match precisely a piece in the first picture.

I also asked this question on http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4230823/consistent-size-for-graphplots/4239362
