# Given a vector (with probably a lot of unique values) create a set of vectors
# that can be used as plotting attributes. For example, return a vector of
# colors, vector of shapes etc.



#' Map a vector to several plotting attributes
#' 
#' Given a vector with likely high number of unique values create a list of
#' vectors which combinations cover the unique values of the input vector.
