[R] centroid of manually given groups in a cca-plot

dear R-friends,

i have a set of vegetation and environmental data:

	veg <- read.table("http://www.alectoria.at/dl/rmalliveg.csv", header=TRUE, sep=";")
	env <- read.table("http://www.alectoria.at/dl/rmallienv.csv", header=TRUE, sep=";")

with the library "vegan" i did a constrained correspondence analysis(cca):

	rmcca <- cca(veg,env)

and with ordihull from "vegan" it is possible to draw a line or polygon around manually
given group(s) - (groups = Factor giving the groups for which the graphical item is drawn) - in the plot of the cca.

	rmlab <- read.table("http://www.alectoria.at/dl/rmlabel.csv")
	ordihull(rmcca, V1, display="sites")

my question in a (more general) way: is it may be possible to get the centroid-coordinates from such
manually given groups of a cca or is it may be possible to draw the centroid of such group(s)?

with greetings from austria
