There is no example in ?panel.superpose. Do you think you
could provide an example for the situation in my post?
I have done quite a bit of RSiteSearch'ing and googling prior to
posting and all the examples I found had colors that depended
on the group, none addressed the situation in my post -- i.e.
coloring individual points within groups.
