[R] Boxplot, formula interface, and labels.

Another way to think of this problem.  If I could get my hands on the
vector of names boxplot()
is creating, I could use gsub() to replace '.' with '\n'.

Is there something I could run before boxplot() that would give me
that vector of names which
I could then pass to boxplot()?
