Resizing Legend Markers in Plots with Matplotlib command

I am using Julia 1.1.0 and plotting images using Plots with PyPlot backend. I need to find a way to make the size of markers in the legend be bigger. This issue has been asked before at least twice:

I have found the following article that explains how to do this from Matplotlib:

My question is twofold:

  1. Can someone please add this to the Plots package?

  2. Is there any way to use the Matplotlib commands directly in Julia right now? This would be a huge help for me in the short term, but I’m not familiar enough with calling other language commands inside Julia to figure out the correct syntax.
