[R] plot with the axes at xlim and ylim

I'd like to make a plot with the axes drawn at the values of xlim and
ylim. The default plot draws the axes slightly outside these values. I
have been experimenting with the par(mgp) setting, but specifying
par(mgp=c(2,0,-1)) gives me 

"invalid value specified for graphics parameter "mgp".".

A more complicated mathod that almost seems to work is doing the plot
with "axes=F" and then adding the axes with "axis" statements:

xlim <- c(0,10)
ylim <- c(0,11)

The problem here is that the vertical axes are not long enough. 

Is there an easier way to get what I want?
