A contour plot of values associated with the points, or a contour plot 
of the density of the points?  For the former, I think you want to use 
the akima package; for the density estimate, you could use kde2d from 
the MASS package.

In either case, you need to compute the values of the function on a 
grid, then the contour() function can plot it.
