or p.162-3, "Visualizing Data"  by W.S.Cleveland (1993)

Yes. I have something, see below.
1) I don't like the stacking from bottom to top, since I read
   graphics (and time) top to bottom

2) By default, I use about 5% overlap on each side

3) no visual reference grid yet. The function was born in 1994,
   long before I even thought of using lattice/trellis.

The function (+ help page) I have is part of a local package which would
probably be called "sfsmisc" (miscellaneous nice utilities of
the S.f.S. (Seminar for Statistics) of ETH Zurich.

I'm about to make this available as beta version within the
several hours, 
and later on CRAN.
Note that the package does not contain any source code and hence
should easily port to Windows.
