Hmm, it depends a bit on how you get these (I assume) Unicode symbols and
fonts.
Note that symb-uni is part of the main distro now, and you probably
should set my earlier version of the file aside.
You could redefine \USymbChar after \usesymbols[uni]:
\def\USymbChar#1#2{%
  \scale[sx=0.8,sy=0.8]{\uchar#1#2}}
\let\USymbCharTwo\USymbChar
\let\USymbCharZapf\USymbChar

(untested, inelegant)
