[R] How to specify fonts

In Splus, if I wanted to use Bookman-Demi instead of the default
Helvetica, I would specify font = 18 as a graphical parameter for a
postscript printer.

In R it seems font can take only the values 1 to 4 which change only
the style but it's still Helvetica.  There's some great flexibility
using Hershey vector fonts, but it appears they are all mono-spaced.

I wish to use proportional spacing, with subscripts and Hershey vector
fonts.  Is that possible?  The help for text() or par() does not make
it clear to me.  Other ideas greatly appreciated.
