I played with this, and couldn't get 
all you want. But a subtlety here is that the 
axis of concern is a categorical x axis, 
not an x axis, strict sense. You can suppress 
the labels by e.g. over(sex, label(nolabels)) 
but that perhaps goes too far the other way. 


over() over() over() 

puts everything on one image.
