[R] ggplot2: can one have separate ylim for each facet?

In lattice

#toy data
x <- rnorm(100)
y <- rnorm(100)
k <- sample(c("Weak","Strong"),100,replace=T)
j <- sample(c("Tall","Short"),100,replace=T)
w <- data.frame(x,y,j,k)


will give you a scale in each subplot with a range equal to the range  
of y within each subplot.

Is this possible using ggplot2?

qplot(x,y,data=w) + facet_grid(j~k) + ylim(-2,2)

produces a plot with the same range in each subplot.  Can the lattice  
behaviour be reproduced in ggplot2?
