As the problem is stated, you cannot solve it.

Depending on circumstances, there are various approaches that you could 
take.  One would be to get the package source, edit the "myplot" 
function so that it has a "..." argument, and then install the edited 

Since we don't know your circumstances, nor what it is that you really 
need to accomplish (your description of the problem is very vague), it 
is difficult to make suggestions.
