Tom is right here. What I should have said / intended to say was something like
"You can _also_ answer to my e-mail address...". I feel sorry that this
misstatement caused a distraction from my request.

Coming back to the original question: We all know the many pages about R
graphics and its numerous features and skills. Therefore, I am more interested
in data visualizations not yet implemented or made available in R.

I am also wondering if the "R Wiki" would be a better place to publish summaries
on topics discussed here. On the mailing list, summaries are forgotten within
one or two months time, only to be retrieved in specific searches.

Comments on any of the issues mentioned are welcome.
