Axes label placement and end arrows

I would like to change the default placement of axes labels using the axes_labels option to plot, as well as add arrows at the ends of the axes. I could do this using the text and Arrow commands, respectively, but wanted to know if there were options to the plot command to do this directly.

I'm not sure if this is currently configurable. We've had a number of requests for the arrows...

OK, I will go ahead and implement them manually for now. Thanks.

This is not an "answer", but it should at least be noted here. Trac 10740 was opened about this very issue, with sample code for how to even implement it in matplotlib.

Edit: See also this ask.sagemath question about the same thing.
