[R] interpolation and 3D plots

Dear Jonathan,

The all.effects function in the car package will identify the high-order 
terms in a linear or generalized-linear model and absorb terms marginal to 
them (e.g., for a two-way interaction, the main effects marginal to the 
interaction and the constant). The plot method for the object produced uses 
trellis graphics to plot terms, but for a two-way interaction, the 
information in the object could easily be plotted as an image (or other 3D) 

I hope that this helps,
