Thank you, Hedderik, this is nice.

The real challenge to all of you:

  Write an R function
        i. as short and beautiful as possible (short, but not obfuscated)
        ii. not using external data
  which draws a plot [I imagine image(), but you are free]
  whose EPS or PDF file can be converted (e.g. by ImageMagick's "convert")
  to such icons.

The price for the winners could be an article in "R news",
or something even better.
It would be fun for a jury at DSC 2001 in Vienna
to vote for the winner (and 2nd and 3rd)...
