I think you misunderstand my question. mouse proximity is a given. I
am referring to how to toggle log scale for the x and y axes
separately with keybindings for the *axes under the mouse point*.
I am just as likely to want logx ans logy, which is why I wasn't
assuming 'l'. But if gnuplot does the y axis with 'l', I'm happy to
follow suit, but the question of the appropriate key for toggling the
x scale is open.
