PlotLegend & Tick marks in MultipleListPlot

I'm having some trouble extracting tick marks from MultipleListPlot when I also have a PlotLegend. For example, if I have no legend, I can extract tick marks using something like: pl1=MultipleListPlot[dataList]; ticks = FrameTicks /. AbsoluteOptions[pl1]; When I add the option PlotLegend to MultipleListPlot, the FrameTicks option returns {{},{}}, but Ticks is populated. However, the tick positions seem to be in relative coordinates instead of the data coordinates. So I have two questions: 1. Is there some known way to convert between the relative coordinates and data coordinates? 2. If not, is there a way of (temporarily) dropping a given argument from a sequence of arguments in a module? For example, suppose I use a module of the form: someMod[f_List, opts___?OptionQ]:=Module[{...},(body to manipulate plot)] Is there some way to remove the PlotLegend option (if it exists) from the sequence contained in opts?
