David, I agree with you. Recently I found that the beanplot (implemented in the beanplot package) is a good alternative to the traditional boxplot in comparing univariate data. Take a look here:
http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/beanplot/vignettes/beanplot.pdf

I was going to suggest the violinplot (from vioplot or UsingR packages). But the beanplot looks like an even better implementation. Boxplots are useful, but if you can have the boxplot layout with more appropriate information about the distributions, why not?
