Multiple Y Axes redux

Hi there,
I know this has been discussed in the past, but I was looking through some
of the history and I'm not sure what the exact situation is. I think
multiple y axes on the same side of the graph is unsupported officially, but
can be hacked together somehow, is that right? Is there an example of such
a hacked together method somewhere that I could look at?

There may be a simpler way to do what I'm trying to do... I'm not trying to
make several different axes, I'm trying to have a logarithmic axis on the
left, but have three different scales (ie 1, 10, 100 on one, 10, 100, 1000
on another, 100, 1000, 10000 on the final one). Is there a way to manually
label the ticks on the axis "1 10 1000" and so on? I think that
might do in a pinch, then I could just divide the plotted values by the
correct scaling factor. Do you guys think that would be the way to go? And
if that is possible, is it possible to have the tick labels be different
colours for the different numbers so it shows which scale is for which line
on the graph? I guess I'm not hopeful for that... Instead could I put in a
bit at the bottom of the graph to highlight which markers go to which axis?
Something like this (for x, o and * data markers on the chart):

Thanks a lot, sorry if this question is kind of hard to follow... Please
let me know if more clarification is needed!
