Q: Has anyone implemented cartograms [**] in R? A search on the R site turned up

        https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/r-sig-geo/2005-December/000698.html which led to

        http://www.okada.jp.org/RWiki/index.php?cmd=read&page=Rmap%A4%F2%BB% C8%A4%C3%A4%BF%C3%CF%BF%DE%C9%BD%BC%A8&word=Rmap#content_1_35

which has (one form of) a cartogram as a PNG, but which doesn't seem to have code. (The site is in Japanese, so I can't be sure on the code availability.)
