I don't understand what you are saying precisely about x and y, but
-stripplot- _does_ have a -separate()- option, as earlier specified.
(You may need to update your copy to see that.) 

Also, more generally, -stripplot- can mimic pretty much anything
-dotplot- can do. 

So as -stripplot- can do at least some of this and -dotplot- can do none
of it, your only option if you prefer -dotplot- is to clone it and add
your own options. Happy programming!

I've tried stripplot, however dotplot is closer to what I'm looking
for albeit I'd like the over option to generate different colored dots
within the same x-scale and preferably the frequency on the y-scale.
