Is there a way to display axis tick marks using one measurement but display labels based on a different measurement?

I have been asked to plot a Kaplan-Meier curve with the x-axis showing tick marks as weeks but labeling in months.  This is not as simple as assuming that a month has exactly 4 weeks.  I am using the formula: MONTHS=(WEEKS*7)/30.4375.  Thus, 8 weeks will not appear as 2 months but rather 1.84 months.  In other words, my labels will be slightly off of my tick marks as I attempt to display below:

|     |     |     |     |     |     |     |     |     |     |     |     |     |     ...

0                       1                       2                      13    ...

Here's one trick you could use with gplot ...

You could annotate the monthly labels.

Here's a similar example where the x-axis is by month, and I annotate the year:

If you want, you can totally suppress the individual tickmark values by using 'value=none' on the axis statement.
