This is doable. But it's also considered a data visualisation hell! So
Hadley didn't make it easy.
I can provide more details on how to do it later (replying from phone just
now). BUT there is very much a question of should you be plotting like
that. It's probably worth giving it serious thought before figuring out how.
The brief summary of 'how' is to convert the y2 axis values to the y axis
values. Plot it, and add a y2 axis.
So if you were plotting 3 values on y1 with values of 20, 30 and 40. And
the y2 axis should have 150, 350 and 550 for example then you decide what
150 should be on y1 (is that 20 or perhaps 15??) {This choice changes your
visualisation and hence one of the reasons it can be bad}. If 150 should
appear as 20 you divide all your y2 values by the same proportion (150/20)
and plot them. Then simply add a second y-axis with the scale reversed.
