Ok, I will.

Can you tell me though what I was doing wrong with the two examples in my
original question?

1.  When using xymatrix the bounding box came out completely wrong.  I
have encountered that problem before, without using excursions: I can post
an example if it would help.

2.  When using escapes for placement in xygraph the text of the escape was
typeset as well as executed.

Many thanks,
