The man page for barplot (?barplot) is confusing...
cex.axis: expansion factor for numeric axis labels.
cex.names: expansion factor for axis names (bar labels).
What is an 'expansion factor', and what does it do in this context?
axis.lty: the graphics parameter 'lty' applied to the axis and tick
marks of the categorical (default horizontal) axis. Note
that by default the axis is suppressed.
This makes no sense unless you know what it does already (which I don't). So
this is more of a programmers cleft note in a 'common language' than a function
say 'mp', giving the coordinates of _all_ the bar midpoints drawn,
