Error in plot.default(NA, NA, type = "n", ylim = ylim, xlim = xlim, xlab = xlab,  : 
	formal argument "ylim" matched by multiple actual arguments

Since plot is called inside symbols, with specified xlim and ylim,
any specification through  ,...  hurts this call.

I am pretty sure that you won't like to hear the suggestion that
this error message 
  formal argument "anything" matched by multiple actual arguments
should only be a warning.
I would find this more convenient since foreseeing these collisions
and programming such arguments as explicit arguments of the "top" function
is a nuisance when writing functions just for one project.

Ceterum censeo: Thanks for your efforts for developing such a useful
