As far as I know, it doesn't; I thought something like that existed in  
scipy.ndimage.interpolation, but apparently I was wrong.

This functionality definitely exists in PIL:

In [63]: import Image

In [64]: x = Image.fromarray(randn(50,50))

In [65]: y = x.resize((500,500),Image.BICUBIC)

However, you probably lose a lot of precision this way.
