[R] axis and tick widths decoupled (especially in rugs!)

(a complete newby, but will not give up easily!)

I was wondering if there is any way to decouple the axis and tick mark widths? As I understand they are both controlled by the lwd setting, and cannot be controlled independently? For example I might want to create major and minor ticks, which I now know how to do by superimposing two axes with different at settings, but what if I also wanted the major ticks to be thicker? or a different colour?
You might find this nitpicking, but I am particularly concerned about rug(), which passes to axis(), in that I cannot get a decent thick-lined rug, without the horizontal line also becoming equally thick. Is there any way to do this without having to resort to segments?
