[R] Feature request: add boxplot()s to current plot (given x[i])

(as the subject says)
It makes sense to add (say k) boxplots to a given plot,
using the given coordinate system.

Currently, the calling sequence
	     boxplot -> boxplot.default() -> bxp()
[modeled after S]
doesn't allow this, since  bxp() explicitly
sets up the coordinate system.

One way would be to add an "add = TRUE" argument to boxplot(.) and bxp(.)
and then additionally specify the (k) x-locations to use.

Has anybody already done something like this?
