[Fontinst] Putting "stuff" in \declaresize

I use \declaresize to put macros as size funcitons in the font
definition files like this:

\declaresize{}{<-> \string\GSMTPRO at scale }

This works but I want to know generally how one can control the
expansion and the verbatim writing in the .fd file for the second
parameter of \declaresize. The definition
\def\declaresize#1#2{\x_cs\edef{siz-#1}{#2}} doesn't explain much to
me. For example, my first try was using \noexpand like
\declaresize{}{<-> \noexpand\GSMTPRO at scale }, but then \GSMTPRO at scale
was expanded neverthenless in the .fd file.
