Hi Mike. Thanks for this great framework!

I'm using your d3.v5 scaleTime and timeFormat with this basic approach (hopefully this line is sufficient for context):
.call(d3.axisBottom(xScale).tickFormat(d3.timeFormat("%Y")))

I'm just wondering if you can think of some way I could change the axis label text? In my case eg. I would like to go to -10000 but it only prints "0000" (4 digit limit).

Thanks,
Sedes
