Method for creating xyloplots

Description

Plots xylophone(s) for the input vector(s), provided either as a single vector or list of vectors. Either numeric vectors or character vectors/factors are admissible. If numeric vectors are provided, cut will be used to aggregate values, whereas if character vectors or factors are provided, each 'level' will get it's own 'key'. Note, that the height of the plot/length of the level labels may need adjusting to fit.
