Yup. That's the general procedure. Some kind of autoscaling would be
nice to have some time in the future, but currently the graphics
model in R (and S-plus) is that of a hardcopy device (e.g. a plotter)
with "no eraser".

There's also the option of using matplot(), although that'll lose the
facilities of plot.density.
