No good way that I can think of, other than replacing all calls to
trellis.device() by trellis.device(theme = col.whitebg()).
A hack is perhaps possible, which involves the global variable lattice.theme,
which stores the settings. If you have that variable in your global
environment (as part of your saved workspace, for example) with components
for all the devices you want to use, lattice will use it. This will work if
you start devices with x11(), postscript() etc. Unfortunately, any call to
trellis.device() to start a new device will overwrite this unless retain =
TRUE is specified. This includes the default invocation when print.trellis is
called without any device open.
