Starting with the obvious  x and y are arbitrary, so instead of
plot (x, y)
you can
plot(y, x)
If you need the data to be descending (smaller values on top, larger
values on bottom) you can invert the normal ordering with
ylim(big_value, small_value)
If neither of these is what you are looking for, please elaborate a bit.
