avoid spurious vertical segment in step function plot

Several packages available from MathSource deal with eliminating the
spurious parts of plots of discontinuous functions across vertical
asymptotes.

Is there some simple way of dealing with the similar problem of
eliminating the spurious vertical line segment in plotting a function
with jumps -- for example, in the following?

  Plot[UnitStep[x], {x, -1, 1}]
