Comparison of plots using Stata, R base, R lattice, and R ggplot2, Part I: Histograms

One of the nicer things about many statistics packages is the extremely granular control you get over your graphical output.  But I lack the patience to set dozens of command line flags in R, and I’d rather not power the computer by pumping the mouse trying to set all the clicky-box options in Stata’s graphics editor.  I want something that just looks nice, using the out-of-the-box defaults.
