This function plots the dynamic programming table, the (back)pointers
and the combined graph of optimal edit transcripts (alignments) computed
with `sdist.trace`

. The fist sequence is represented by the y-axis
and the second by the x-axis.

The circumference of a circle is proportional to the minimum cost
(maximum weight) of edit (alignment) operations leading to a table cell.
`circle.scale`

specifies the type of normalization performed where
`last`

means the last table entry (containing the optimum value),
and `text`

draws the values instead of circles.

The (back)pointers, defining possible (traceback) paths, are plotted
as `dotted`

edges. Note that a traceback starts in the last cell
of the table and ends at the origin.

For the edges of the graph that is the union of all optimal paths, two
line types are used: `solid`

for insert, delete, and replace
operations, and `dashed`

for a match. The line width indicates the
number of times an edge is on a path, but note that the interpretation
is device-specific (compare `par`

).

Some issues with grid were fixed in R.2.4.x (Fixme ?).
