[R] overlapping plots

If I had the three plots on three separate sheets of paper, I could cut 
out plot 2 and paste it over plot one so that the data and axes on both 
plots can be seen.  Then I could cut out plot 3 and past it over plots 1 
and 2 so that data and axes on all three plots can be seen.  For my 
special case, the x-axes would have to appear at the top of each plot. 
If there are boxes around the plots or guide lines, the parts below 
plots 2 and 3 should be obscured.
