It would be great if something like

currentPlot <- edit(par)

allowed dynamic changes to the 'currentPlot', which I am using as some kind of 'magic' keyword in the above context. i.e. the value of 'currentPlot' is actually an alias for whatever the current graphical object is.

calling the above command would open the edit pannel for the par options relevant to whatever the currentPlot object was.

The changes made to par would trigger an automatic redraw of the plot, to allow dynamic editing. After the changes were made and edit closed, a copy of the edited par could be taken to allow the settings to be automatically applied in the future.

Dynamic editing of all object variables could be supported through this mechanism to allow a very flexible overall control of graphical objects.
