dat <- data.frame(x = sample(letters[1:5],100,replace = TRUE))

p <- ggplot(dat,aes(x = x)) + 
            geom_bar() + 

#These are all identical
p + theme(axis.text.x = element_text(hjust = 0))
p + theme(axis.text.x = element_text(hjust = 0.5))
p + theme(axis.text.x = element_text(hjust = 1))

This sounds like a great feature, but unfortunately we don't currently have the development bandwidth to support it. If you'd like to submit a pull request that implements this feature, please follow the instructions in the development vignette.
