With ggplot2:

qplot(sample = -log(p), distribution = qexp)
qplot(sample = -log(p), distribution = qexp, colour = factor(group))

However, the major caveat is that this doesn't work in the released
version, but does in the development version, which I can send you off
list if you tell me what operating system you use.
