[Rd] termplot - changes in defaults

While termplot is under discussion, here's another proposal. I'd like to
change the default for partial.resid to TRUE, and for smooth to
panel.smooth. I'd be surprised if those changes were to break existing code.

Yes, that was the intention (to go into R-devel).
(It was also my intention to attach as plain text, but my Windows mailer
seems to have defeated that.)

ylim = "common" the default.
I suspect we could if I allow a way to get the previous behaviour
(ylim="free", I think).
