Lexis maps in R

Camarda, Carlo Giovanni
Dear R-users,
Sorry for bothering you twice in a day, but I was wondering whether
there is any R-function which can easily plot the single elements of a
Lexis diagram. I though that Lexis.diagram(Epi) could be the case, but
it just plot life times in a frame.
In particular I have been searching for something similar to the
function "image" which can plot either the single triangles of a Lexis
diagram or the parallelograms (e.g. probability of dying if the event is
the death).
I wrote down a simple example in which I played around with the function
polygon, but in this case the procedure would be too long (normally data
are set in matrix) and also the colors are messed up.

## a wrong example for giving an idea of what I'd like to plot
x <- 0:4
A <- matrix(1:16,ncol=4)
image(x,x,A, col="white")
colo <- rainbow(12)
for(i in 1:4){
    x1 <- c(0,1,2,1)
    y1 <- c(0,0,1,1) + i -1
    x2 <- x1+1
    y2 <- y1
    x3 <- x2+1
    y3 <- y2
    polygon(x1,y1,col=colo[i + i - 1])
