While termplot is under discussion, here's another proposal. I'd like to change the default for partial.resid to TRUE, and for smooth to panel.smooth. I'd be surprised if those changes were to break existing code.

Yes, that was the intention (to go into R-devel). (It was also my intention to attach as plain text, but my Windows mailer seems to have defeated that.)

I suspect we could if I allow a way to get the previous behaviour (ylim="free", I think).
