I have seen this package and especially the 'perimeter' function, and it has not a 'levels' parameters like a lot of other functions, and this is a big problem for my project. Otherwise I find this package have a better architecture than the other spatial package ^^

The plotting is handed off to lattice functions. His default plotting function for 2D plotting is contourplot. It didn't take that long to make the transition to rms+lattice and I have been very pleased with the integration of the two.
