[R] box type in Hmisc xYplot

I do not know about xYplot, but the "scales" argument controls axes in
xyplot. For example:

scales = list(alternating = 1)

would draw axes on left/bottom ...  see ?xyplot for details and subtleties.

Again, might not work for xYplot.

So you need to think how you would specify the options in lattice::xyplot and then try to pass those arguments, since there is a "dots" mechanism. I tried finding a solution in Sarkar's Lattice book but didn't come up with anything. The "box" settings I found applied to bwplot "boxes".
