[R] y-axis label location relative to tick label width?

Dear R experts: I have an odd question: would it be better to calculate the location of the axis label relative to the furthest protruding tick label? the background is that I have my y-tick labels oriented horizontally rather than vertically. if R chooses to set a tick mark at "2", the y label should be relatively close to the axis. if R chooses to put 1.998, it should sit farther (because otherwise the "1" may touch the y label). possible? regards, /ivo
