Dear Rodney,

of course we can scavange on MultipleListPlot, e.g. like that:

<< Graphics`MultipleListPlot`
<< Graphics`Graphics`

Now be ...

t = Table[Exp[n^2], {n, 0, 10}]; 

... our data, and let's have ...

lp = LinearLogListPlot[t, PlotJoined -> True] 

lpt = LinearLogListPlot[t, PlotJoined -> False]

... as we like. The trick is to get at a private function of MultipleListPlot.
So we define

ss[sym_, size:(_Integer | _Real):5., style: _?(!NumberQ[#] &):{}, t___?OptionQ]
  Graphics`MultipleListPlot`Private`doshape[style, PlotSymbol[sym, size, opt],
	None, #] &

... and now we can do different things:

Show[lp, Graphics[ss[Diamond] @ lp[[1, 1]] ]]

Show[lp, Graphics[ss[Box, 3.5] @ lp[[1, 1]]  ]]

Show[lp, Graphics[ss[Star, 7, Hue[0], Filled -> False] @ lp[[1, 1]] ]]

  Graphics[ss[Triangle, Hue[2/3]] @ (lpt[[1]] /. Point -> Sequence)]]

Kind regards,  Hartmut Wolf
