[R] Question about manipulating quartiles

I know the `quantcut' function in the gregmisc package, and using it,
I'm able to use functions like aggregate to compute the mean or sd()
in each quartile.

What if I have a data frame containing x and y, and I want to make
quartiles by x, but then compute sum x / sum y in each quartile?
How does one persuade aggregate to do this?
