insufficient documentation of geom_bar with stat="identity" #729

The Details section states "If you have presummarised data, use stat="identity" to turn off the default summary.", which is fine. However, the Aesthetics section doesn't tell that then x and y instead of x and weight are needed. There is a single example for stat=identity, but that doesn't show the used aesthetics because qplot does this implicitly.


This sounds like a great feature, but unfortunately we don't currently have the development bandwidth to support it. If you'd like to submit a pull request that implements this feature, please follow the instructions in the development vignette.
