By golly! So it is. Sorry. That is the trouble with working from home
and not having Splus around...

Actually, I did look for something that did what box() does, but
couldn't find it off-hand. It isn't really obvious where to look.

When we get around to finishing the plot() man page, let's try to
remember to add a short note on axes=F. Something like

axes=F removes the axes and the plot boundary. Use 'axis'
and 'box' to add them later.
