#' Boxplot for `ps` objects
#'
#' This function produces a collection of diagnostic plots for ps objects.
#'
#' This function produces lattice-style graphics of diagnostic plots. 
#'
#' @param x A `ps` object
#' @param subset If multiple `stop.method` rules were used in the `ps()` call, `subset` 
#'   restricts the plots of a subset of the stopping rules that were employed. This argument
#'   expects a subset of the integers from 1 to k, if k `stop.method`s were used.
#' @param color If `FALSE`, a grayscale figure will be returned.
#' @param time For use with iptw fits.
#' @param ... Additional arguments that are passed to boxplot function, which may bepassed to
#'   the underlying `lattice` package plotting functions.
