One way (the only way without modifying source code?) to satisfy
your first wish is to insert a newline before your label as in

   zlab = "\nMy z-text".

I don't know of an answer for your second wish other than using
the single letter "Z" as your label :)

I've tried adjustments with 'mgp' in 'par', but without success. The second is to change the direction of the label. Currently it reads top to bottom, whereas I would like it to read bottom to top, as per a y-axis on a standard plot. Is there anyway of doing so?
