[S] commas in number format

hi all -

some journals insist on having ALL numbers, even those on figure axes,
formatted with commas. it's getting to be annoying to have to use
xaxt="n" followed by axis() with the labels hard-coded, but i haven't
yet figured out how to do better. format.default() has the appropriate
argument (big.mark), but it doesn't seem to get called by anything but
format(). i am primarily using plot().

have i missed something in the documentation? does trellis do what i
want? does version 4.x have this?

thanks.
