Controlling axes lengths in Plots

Has anybody found a good technique to assume absolute control over the lengths of the axes in a 2D plot? I often have to build several graphs to be overlaid using transitions in presentation software and want to keep the plot area consistent for smooth transitions. ImageSize only gives control over dimensions of the resulting graphic. If there are frame labels or legends that change in size from one graph to the next than the whole graphic is constrained by ImageSize, shrinking my plot area. I have several workarounds, all of which break eventually. What I would really like is a FrameSize->{} option that overrides ImageSize and lets me set the dimensions of the plot area directly. Daniel
