The key to this is that you can emulate -graph box- with -graph twoway
rbar-. There is code in -stripplot- from SSC that gets you most of the
way. Also, note that -egenmore- from SSC contains -egen- functions for
so-called adjacent values. 

I am never concerned about being able to mimic the graphs of another
program _exactly_. Either Stata just can't do something adequately (3-D
graphics, mathematics in titles, etc.) or it can do something about as
good or better.

I wonder now if such a simple solution would also be available for the 
upper part of the R graph, since -graph box- is not a twoway type and, 
as I understand it, cannot be overlayed with another -twoway- graph...
