Hi Tom,
The "error bars" in hierobarp are whatever you specify they are. In the 
examples, both standard error and quantiles are illustrated. If you 
really don't want bars, it might be possible to display hierarchical 
dotplots, but I doubt that it would visually convey the hierarchical 
breakdown as well as the overplotted bars.
