The coord_fixed() bit in the example below is silently ignored.

ggplot(mtcars) + 
  geom_point(aes(wt, mpg)) + 
  facet_wrap(~vs, scales = "free") + 

I'm not sure whether ggplot2 should allow for fixed coordinates in conjunction with free scales, but assuming the answer is "no", maybe we should add a message/warning/error?

Want to have a go at a PR? I think free scales probably should default to a warning, except for coords where it words (IIRC only coord_cartesian() and coord_flip())
