OK. Thanks.  One suggestion.  Maybe the cells in a layout could have
an order to them and there could be an optional argument that takes a linear
index directly allowing easy linear traversals:

for(i in seq(nr*nc)) {
   pushViewport(viewport(i)) # might need different syntax here
   xyplot(seq(i) ~ seq(i))

and taking it one further perhaps 'with' could have a viewport method 
that automatically pushes the viewport on entry and pops or moves
up one level on exit reducing the above to:

for(i in seq(nr*nc)) with(viewport(i), xyplot(seq(i) ~ seq(i)))
