setting par(fig) resets par(mfrow), par(mfcol)

  Can we add a note to the documentation that setting par(fig) resets
par(mfrow) and par(mfcol) to c(1,1)?
  Or are mfrow and mfcol now deprecated in favor of all the split screen
stuff?  (I was spending the morning trying to write some code that plotted
multiple subplots within whatever plot region was active at the moment; I
was able to set and reset fig successfully, but got very confused as to
why par(mfg) was no longer advancing ...  I know that in principle
  opar <- par(no.readonly=TRUE)

should have reset everything, but [for reasons I'm too lazy to analyze] it
didn't seem to be working.)
