[R] accessing current factor in tapply

I want to access in a function called from tapply the current factor.  In 
my example below, all I want to do is to write the current factor on each 
histogram.  Needless to say my example does not work. I would be grateful 
for pointers in the right direction.

Many thanks

cc <- 1:10
ff <- rep(c("a","b"),5)

pp<- function(x,f) {
   hist(x, main=as.character(f))

tapply(aa, ff, pp, f=ff)
