I don't know if WebDraw will let you do this, but you can establish a 
"group" of objects with the <g> element and apply transformations to them 
all. The following example will translate and scale both the circle and 
the rectangle.

<g transform="translate(5, 7) scale(2)">
   <circle cx="10" cy="10" r="2"/>
   <rect x="50" y="50" width="10" height="5"/>

Is there a "group objects" option in WebDraw? (I don't know; I do all my 
SVG by hand. The hard way.)
