[R] if/else for plot/lines?

I'm interested in writing a function that constructs a new plot on the
current graphics device if no plot exists there yet, but adds lines to
the existing plot if a plot is already there.  How can I do this?  It
seems to me that the exists() function might be co-opted to do this, but
it's not obvious how.

Many thanks,
