Stata will draw this graph, but I see no point to it. The data points
are shown w.r.t. the log scales, but the arithmetic scales relate to
nothing (and vice versa). 

This is a question to Joana, as I think Scott was just trying to answer
the question without necessarily understanding why Joana thinks this
kind of graph would be useful.

Something like this?

sysuse auto,clear

scatter mpg gear, ms(i) || scatter mpg gear, xscale(log axis(2))
yscale(log axis(2)) yaxis(2) xaxis(2)
