You have to adapt the function bxp() for your purposes:
If you use fix(bxp), you can change the color in lines 27 and 38.
It's a nice programming exercise to add an argument to boxplot() that
colors the median differently from the other borders (and thus passes
the argument to bxp() appropriately).
