Or, anova(lm(y~x+factor(x),data)) and the F-test is in the row for
factor(x). Has the advantage of making *d?mn* sure that you are
actually comparing nested models... Or, in the case with few
replications of each x, perhaps consider models like 


(although some might prefer (say) a spline curve alternative instead)
