directlabels: Direct labels for multicolor plots in lattice or ggplot2

An extensible framework for automatically placing direct labels onto multicolor lattice or ggplot2 plots. Label positions are described using Positioning Methods which can be re-used across several different plots. There are heuristics for examining "trellis" and "ggplot" objects and inferring an appropriate Positioning Method.
