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.
