[R-SIG-Mac] Sweave, LaTeX, and ... quartz?

Hi Folks,

I was wondering how others generate on-screen graphics and graphics  
files when they want to use Sweave to generate Latex documents.

I am using Aquamacs
( GNU Emacs (powerpc-apple-darwin7.9.0, Carbon Version  
1.6.0)  of 2007-04-15 on rodrigues.inf.ed.ac.uk - Aquamacs  
Distribution 1.0rc3 )

I have been using x11(), but I would prefer to use a quartz device,  
simply because the on-screen quality is much better, and I imagine  
there are other advantages as well?

Is CarbonEL still recommended? An older hack seems unavailable.
 > install.packages("CarbonEL",,"http://rforge.net/")
Warning message:
package 'CarbonEL' is not available

Thank you for your solutions.
