sec_axis seems to break with tidy evaluation #2788

I am trying to add a transformed secondary axis in a function which is using quasiquotations, but sec_axis errors saying that it can't find one of the quoted variables. This only happens when changing trans from its default ~.. For example, dup_axis works fine. reprex included below.

f <- function(df, .x, .y, .z) {
  g <- ggplot(df,aes(x=!!x,y=!!y)) + 
    geom_bar(stat="identity") + 
    geom_point(aes(y=!!z)) +
    scale_y_continuous(sec.axis = sec_axis(~./10))


t <- tibble(x = letters, y = seq(10,260, 10), z = 1:26)

f(t, x, y, z)
#> Error in as.list.environment(x, all.names = TRUE): object 'x' not found

I've been working on other bugs and features in the secondary axis, so I had a pretty good sense where this was coming from and created a hasty fix this morning with a simple switch in evaluation functions. I need to do due diligence to ensure this isn't breaking anything else, and is an appropriate and general fix but otherwise will write up a PR later this week, hopefully along with some other sec.axis fixes.
