st: Using a graph scheme to edit y-axis defaults

Hi all,

Another graph question (I can't promise it will be the last, although 
Michael Mitchell's book has been quite helpful in answering questions that 
would otherwise have gone to statalist). I'm currently working on a scheme 
(based off of s1color). There are two things that I would like to happen 
to the y-axes but that I can't figure out:

1. Label both y-axes (left and right). I can specify in a scheme that I 
want it to label the alternate axis, so why can't I tell it to label both? 
The two would be identical (same variable, same scale, etc.). Is this 
simply not possible?
2. Orient the y-axis title horizontally and place it at the top of the 

Note that I've accomplished both of these tasks in the graph command, but 
I want to generalize them into the scheme so I don't have to specify these 
details every time.
