Follow-up Comment #4, bug #34119 (project octave):

I don't really understand how the fairly flexible argument lists of plot() are
parsed but I imagine plotyy could be done in a similar way. 

Currently it is a bit illogical that they function so differently (specifying
linestyle, legend titles etc seems to be completely a different mechanism). 

For the multiple plots:

plotyy(x1,y1,"axes", "x1,y2","other_opt","opt_value",

xd4,yd4 by default plots on x1y1 . 

The argument list could be extensible as is the case for plot. 

I currently have two datasets that have the same scale and a third that is
different. I can't do it with plot because I need two scales but I cant do it
with plotyy because it can't take three datasets. 

As it works now, I need to dump out to a text file and use gnuplot directly on
the data. It would be nice if I could skip that drudgery.
