[R] kappa points to -concord- as a contribution in this territory. 
-findit concord- shows the historical trail. Pick 
the latest software, although the first write-up is 
the fullest. 

In addition to the graphs and measures computed
by -concord-, let me add a reference to the -vplplot- 
program on SSC and the really excellent paper 

McNeil, D.R. 1992. On graphing paired data. 
American Statistician 46, 307-11.

which lies behind it.
