	still defines  par2(.) which is not used anymore ..
	in the base package.

This (undocumented) function had been introduced around 0.49 or so.
I'm guessing that its intent is to be used from
high-level plotting functions for setting parameters specified by the
 "..." arguments.

Since (at least) 0.61,  par2(.) has been eliminated from all the
library/base/R/ code.
However it IS still used in  src/library/mva/R/hclust and ......./mva

Ross, Paul, ??
can we decide if this function is  needed / useful enough to be part of R
``properly'' (i.e. including documentation), or 
was it just a convenience kludge that should be eliminated ASAP?
