Umm, you should already have lines colored differently by different 
'subject's. Do you want to further differentiate by treatment ? 

If that's so, there's probably no good way. You could try creating a new 
factor combining subject and treatment and use that as the groups argument, 

factor(paste(as.character(subject), as.character(treatment), sep = "/"))
