I think the point is that lwd doesn't work for _points_, and that is a
bug (lplot.xy doesn't pass on lwd to grid.points). I'll fix it,
meanwhile a workaround is to use grid.points directly, e.g.
library(grid)
xyplot(1:10 ~ 1:10, cex = 2, lwd = 3,
panel = function(x, y, ...) grid.points(x, y, gp = gpar(...)))
