Multiple scales for Y axis of plot?

I have a typical multi-expression plot like this:

Plot[ {f1, f2}, {x,a,b}, PlotStyle->{RGBColor[1,0,0], RGBColor[0,0,1]}

On the Y axis, I want to have a different scale for each of the two
functions.  How can I generate another scaled Y axis adjacent to the
default one, or in general acheive this sort of thing?  I anticipate a
lengthy process of building up all the graphics primitives, but before I
figure all that out, I'm wondering if there is a reasonably easy way.
