You have just to change three lines in mosaicplot.default(). 
Since you provided a very nice suggestion to improve dotchart()
(THANKS!), please, would you provide a suggestion for this one too?

That will be a bit more difficult than just using las, because
annotation is done by text(), not mtext() nor axis(). One have to
calculate with the las values in the srt argument of the text() calls.
I am sure you will provide a suggestion for the improvement soon. [If
you don't get it to work, just send a private e-mail.]
