#' Plot trait distributions
#' 
#' This function plots the quantiles of each trait
#' against quantiles of a theoretical normal distribution.
#' This provides a way to check whether traits are normally
#' distributed
#' 
#' @param data_obj a \code{\link{Cape}} object
#' @param pheno_which A vector of trait names to plot. The default is to plot all traits.
#' @param pheno_labels A vector of names for traits to appear in the plot in case the column names are not very pretty.
