[R] Different x-axis scales using c() in latticeExtra

Many thanks, Felix. Though, it seems like the x.same option should
allow this: "if TRUE, set the x scale relation to "same" and
recalculate panel limits using data from all panels. Otherwise, the x
scales in each panel will be as they were in the original objects (so
in general not the same), the default behaviour." Or does this just
refer to different axis ranges on the same type of scale?
By the way, the grid.arrange feature from gridExtra seems to produce
the same output as plot.trellis using the split option. Is there an
advantage to using grid.arrange over plot.trellis? Also, do you have
pointers to documentation that would help me alter the plot.trellis
output to look more like the c() output (e.g., remove horizontal space
between plots and make sure plots have consistent widths?
Thanks,
Jeff
