[R] dev.print and win.print

Just format your plot suitably and select on the Windows driver portrait 
or landscape orientation.

The rotation in the Windows device driver to landscape is exactly what 
postscript does for horizontal = TRUE (the default).  It's just that 
Unix print commands do not have rotation built in (in general), so
postscript() does.

I think a lot of this comes about because by default S-PLUS graphics
devices are landscape format, whereas R ones are square.
