[Rd] yinch() is NOT nonsense with log='y'

May I request a modest change in the documentation and warning
for "xinch", "yinch", and "xyinch"?
Consider the following example:
> plot(1:2, log='y')
In yinch(1) : y log scale: yinch() is nonsense
In fact, in this environment, "yinch(y)" translates a vertical
displacement of "y" inches into the corresponding change in the log10
scale. For a realistic example of such a use, see the first example of
the current R-Forge version of the new "animate" function in the "Ecfun"
package: This places the Rlogo on a plot(..., log='y') without distortion.
