[R] Adding error bars to a trellis barchart display

Hi all --

   I'm using trellis to generate bar charts, but there's no built-in function to generate error bars or confidence intervals, as far as I can tell. I assumed I could just write my own panel function to add them, so I searched the archive, and found a posting from the author of the package stating "... placing multiple bars side by side needs specialized calculations, which are done within panel.barchart. To add bars to these, you will need to reproduce those calculations."

   Just so I'm clear on this -- there's no capacity to add bars to the plot, nor to find out the coordinates of the bars in the graphs themselves. If you want them, you have to completely rewrite panel.barchart. Is this correct? Are there really so few people using error bars with bar charts?
