Well, not so much... :(

At least in my old R14 release, set(gca,'xticklabel',l) w/ "l" being the 
derived set of values puts them at the right locations but adds another 
set of subticks that clutters things up.  The font size needed is 
_quite_ small for more than 2 decades as well.

Couldn't get it to work well w/ this release w/o more futzing than  have 
time for...or really inclination more accurately :)

I figured it would be far better than the results were... :(
