Hi All,

I am trying to build a composite plot, with multiple categories, using

In principle, it could be done using facetting, but I do not seem to be able
to get past the defaults, so I try building each plot separately, then
putting them all together using frameGrob and placeGrob.
For this, I need to know how to:
1) format the legend with a different layout (e.g 2 rows by 2 columns,
rather than using the vertical orientation only;
2) draw the numbers on top of the bars (the issue is locating the bars, of
3) extract the definition of the axes (scales, with breaks and labels) from
the individual plots

I am attaching an image describing what I would like to achieve. The quality
is low, to avoid consuming too much of your bandwidth.
I would appreciate any pointers.
