Yes, for example
x = 1:10
y = rnorm(10)
g = gl(2, 5)
xyplot(y ~ x | g)
But that is not really your question.

Someone needs to do that tedious task. If you want to automate it,
write a matrix method for xyplot():
xyplot.matrix <- function(x, ..., outer = TRUE)
x <- as.data.frame(x)
stopifnot(nrow(x) > 1)
nms <- sprintf("`%s`", colnames(x))
form <- sprintf("%s ~ %s", paste(nms[-1], collapse = "+"), nms)
xyplot(as.formula(form), data = x, ..., outer = outer)
x <- 1:10
y <- cbind(x,-x) # 2-column matrix
p <- cbind(rep(1,10),rep(2,10)) # "panel" matrix
> x <- 1:10
> y <- cbind(x,-x) # 2-column matrix
> p <- cbind(rep(1,10),rep(2,10)) # "panel" matrix
> xyplot(y~x|p) # does not work; can this be fixed (without the use of a dataframe)?
