Right, "log scales" in lattice simply transform the data, unlike in
traditional graphics.

If it helps, I could change current.panel.limits() to return
information on whether the data were transformed. For now, a
roundabout way to detect this inside the panel function is to use
trellis.last.object()$y.scales$log etc.
