[R] Boxplots using percentiles?

The standard R boxplot appears to use quartiles to determine the height of
the rectangles and a range parameter - RNG - (default=1.5 I think) that
determines the length of the whiskers as <= RNG x Interquartile Range.  Is
it possible to instead define the range as extending to the 95th percentile?
If so, how would this be done?  
nb, I'm plotting multiple boxplots on a single chart so a function that
applies to multiple series would be useful.
