gridGraphics: Redraw Base Graphics Using 'grid' Graphics

Functions to convert a page of plots drawn with the graphics package into identical output drawn with the grid package. The result looks like the original graphics-based plot, but consists of grid grobs and viewports that can then be manipulated with grid functions (e.g., edit grobs and revisit viewports).
