Actually, this doesn't _quite_ do what I want;
I want different R colors (1, 2, 3, &c.) to select
different pens in HPGL ("SP1", "SP2", "SP3", &c.),
but the HPGL file I get selects only pen 1.
A hacky way to do this would be to generate
a few different postscript files for the different
colors on the plot, create the corresponding HPGL
files, edit the SP command in each of them, and
concatenate them. But maybe there's a better way?
