[R] Separating point symbols and line types in a legend.

I would like to have a legend given in the manner
but with the point symbol *NOT* being superimposed on the line segments
that are plotted.
I saw that I can specify "merge=FALSE" in the call to legend() but this
gives results like unto
with the plot symbol being immediately juxtaposed to the plotted line
segment. I would like a space between them, like so:
---- * irving
(See the difference?)
I can see no arguments to legend that allow me to effect this. I can
adjust positioning of the legend text, but not of the plotted point
character or line segment. Is there any way to effect the desired
result? Or is there a "simple" adjustment that one could make to the
code for legend() that would allow me to accomplish what I want?
