#' Modify axis, legend, and plot labels
#'
#' Good labels are critical for making your plots accessible to a wider
#' audience. Always ensure the axis and legend labels display the full
#' variable name. Use the plot `title` and `subtitle` to explain the
#' main findings. It's common to use the `caption` to provide information
#' about the data source. `tag` can be used for adding identification tags
#' to differentiate between multiple plots.
#'
#' You can also set axis and legend labels in the individual scales (using
#' the first argument, the `name`). If you're changing other scale options, this
#' is recommended.
#'
#' If a plot already has a title, subtitle, caption, etc., and you want to
#' remove it, you can do so by setting the respective argument to `NULL`. For
#' example, if plot `p` has a subtitle, then `p + labs(subtitle = NULL)` will
#' remove the subtitle from the plot.
#'
#' @param label The title of the respective axis (for `xlab()` or `ylab()`) or
#' of the plot (for `ggtitle()`).
#' @param title The text for the title.
#' @param subtitle The text for the subtitle for the plot which will be
#' displayed below the title.
#' @param caption The text for the caption which will be displayed in the
#' bottom-right of the plot by default.
#' @param tag The text for the tag label which will be displayed at the
#' top-left of the plot by default.
#' @param ... A list of new name-value pairs. The name should be an aesthetic.
#' @export
#' @examples
#' p <- ggplot(mtcars, aes(mpg, wt, colour = cyl)) + geom_point()
#' p + labs(colour = "Cylinders")
#' p + labs(x = "New x label")
#'
#' # The plot title appears at the top-left, with the subtitle
#' # display in smaller text underneath it
#' p + labs(title = "New plot title")
#' p + labs(title = "New plot title", subtitle = "A subtitle")
#'
#' # The caption appears in the bottom-right, and is often used for
#' # sources, notes or copyright
#' p + labs(caption = "(based on data from ...)")
#'
#' # The plot tag appears at the top-left, and is typically used
#' # for labelling a subplot with a letter.
#' p + labs(title = "title", tag = "A")
#'
#' # If you want to remove a label, set it to NULL.
#' p + labs(title = "title") + labs(title = NULL)
