[S] moving Trellis axis labels closer

Hi all,

for S-Plus 3.4. on Unix:

I want to move the x and y labels on an xyplot (containing
but a single panel) closer to their axes than the default.

Unfortunately, setting par(mgp=c(1.5, 0.5, 0)) does not
seem to change anything.
xyplot also won't accept mgp=c(1.5, 0.5, 0) as an argument

1. How can I achieve the move?
2. Does anybody have code that chooses nice values for
mgp _automatically_ (depending on how much space is required
for the tick labels) and also sets mar accordingly?
S-Plus really ought to have such a thing; the fine-tuning
of figures always costs an awful lot of time.

Please reply to me directly, I'll summarize to the group.

Thanks in advance

Lutz
