Thank you. I was stupid to ask such a trivial question along with a
not-so-trivial one. The second part of the question was probably more
important: is there a way to obtain the location of segments produced
by the segmented package, so that I can annotate them easily?

I have since asked this question of Vito, the package's author. Here
is his response:

dear Ben,
here a possible solution,

o is the segmented fit

  v<-sort(c(r, est.psi))
  xCoord<-rowMeans(cbind(v[-length(v)], v[-1]))


  id<-sapply(xCoord, function(x)which.min(abs(x-Z)))

  plot(o, col=2:4, res=T)
  text(xCoord, yCoord, labels=formatC(slope(o)[[1]][,1], digits=2),
pos=4, cex=1.3)

Play with pos, cex and digits to modify the appearance of the labels.

I hope this is better.
