[ filled.contour()  does have an `axes = FALSE' option but that
  eliminates axes both on the image _and_ on the key/legend.

  As Roger Peng has just noted you can get rid of the axes of
  the image alone, using  `plot.axes = {}',
  however as you say, it's the box, not the axes you want to get
  rid of

R-1.8.0  will also have an argument  'frame.plot'
which can be set to FALSE to eliminate the box around the plot.
Note that it does not eliminate the box around the legend.
Since I think this is hardly desired this is still not an option
of the future filled.contour().
