I normally use ggplot2, and I know how to plot multiple datasets by simply + a new geom with a different data option, but usually in these case my different datasets have had the same x and y axes. Can I add a new x axis to the top of the plot in ggplot2 or one of the other graphics packages?


x <- qplot(mpg, disp, data = mtcars)
y <- qplot(hp, wt, data = mtcars)
