Subject: R-alpha: 0.16.1: bxp() or par2(.) bug:  ``parameter "fill" is not setable''

This is from the	demos/  directory :

i.e., from the file	RHOME/demos/graphics/graphics :

> par(bg="cornsilk")
> n <- 10
> g <- gl(n, 100, n*100)
> x <- rnorm(n*100) + sqrt(codes(g))
> boxplot(split(x,g), fill="lavender", notch=TRUE)
Next plot? 
Error in par2(args) : parameter "fill" is not setable

The reason is that 'boxplot' and 'bxp' have been rewritten since 0.15,
not using an explicit "fill =" parameter anymore, but rather rely on
passing parameters to  par2(..).

And par2(..) [now an .Internal, in  .../main/par.c ]
does not yet know how to deal with  "fill = "
