Setting GridLines style for major and minor grid lines

I am drawing a log plot. Because it spans many decades, the grid lines
look horrible in the default setting (they completely overwhelm the
plot). What I want is to only draw the grid lines for the major grid
(for the y axis). I was looking at a way to specify the style of the
gridlines separately for major and minor grid WITHOUT having to
generate all the gridline locations myself. Unfortunately is seems
that in Mathematica 7 GridLinesStyle->{xstyle,ystyle} is the only available
option. It would be SOOOO MUCH BETTER if Mathematica would have:

GridLinesStyle->{{xMajorStyle,xMinorStyle},{yMajorStyle,yMinorStyle}}

Any other easy way to achieve this?


I find that Mathematica still has many irritating limitations with plots.
This is only one I have run into.

TIA
