I just discovered that using the xYplot (Hmisc) and rotating the grid

viewport (and the labels etc) given me exactly what I need. I wish I had

thought of that much sooner....

axes? That would be ideal as I could use the grouping functions in

xYplot and save a bunch of work.

See

The untruncated code can be seen with

file.show(system.file("demo/intervals.R", package = "lattice"))

There was a recent thread dealing with extensions (grouping and
