yes - but I want something that looks like the generic boxplot, but in which I can control where the edges of the boxes are placed what the sizes of the whiskers are. A combination of errorbar and bar, with this appearance, if you will.

I guess then yours will be a non-standard box-plot because in a regular boxplot median is at 50th percentile, and the edges are at 25 and 75th respectively. There is no consensus for whiskers some uses 5 and 95 some 10 - 90 or you could come up with your own pair. Don't get surprised if you see different results for different percentiles. See at http://old.nabble.com/incorrect-boxplot--td25440025.html
Probably you don't seek something like boxplot's widths kw arg if I understand you right?

Hi - more generally, is there any way to control the location of the median line, the vertical size of the box and the vertical location of the whiskers?
Thanks - Ariel
Aren't those generically calculated from the data?
