As of version 7, 3D graphics and plotting commands accept the

Plot3D[Sin[x y], {x, -3, 3}, {y, -3, 3}, AxesOrigin -> {0, 0, 0}]

One thing to note about how this works...the axes are always completely
visible, regardless of whether equivalently placed primitives would have
been obscured by objects in the scene.
