In agreement with Scott's advice, but you should 
certainly not change -avplot- itself: 

There is an ancient package on SSC called -avplot2- 
which was a response to a similar need that I felt. This is
for the old graphics. I have a sense that I revised
these programs somewhere, some time, but evidently 
I never made them public, so perhaps I need to find the files
or redo the work.
