I try to make barplots with rather wide labels. A simplified example of

x <- c(12, 33, 56, 67, 15, 66)
names(x) <- c('Richard with a long surname','Minnie with a long
barplot(x, las = 2)

Now the label 'Richard with a long surname' is too long to fit beneath the
bars. A simple solution would be enlarge the space for the labels by
positioning the bar region higher. But I cannot find how to do this. Please
