Data Points added to Box Plots

The layout is similar to that produced in JMP and I have found that the addition of the data points to the box plots very useful.
In the attached example I overlayed the box and whisker on top of the datapoints. For Series A, the label is set at X=0, Series B at x = 1, and Series C at x =2. I created a wave for the x values for each series with x = 0 + gnoise(.3), x = 1 + gnoise(.3).... and then plotted the series values versus the x value waves. The reason for the jitter is to show points that may overlap because they have the same value.
This adds another dimension to looking at the data. I think it would be an easy addition. Everything for the folks at Wavemetrics is easy.
