Consider the following plot

```
using Plots
pyplot()
radix_range_xticks = -4:4
radix_range = LinRange(-4, 4, 100)
xs = 2.0 .^ radix_range_xticks
pf = 50.0
bw = 25.0
roofline(x, bw, pf) = min(bw*x, pf)
ys = roofline.(xs, bw, pf)
p = plot(xs, ys; xscale=:log2, yscale=:log10)
xticks!(p, xs)
```

This results in a plot that looks like this.

The x-ticks and y-ticks both are formatted as exponentials. Adding the keyword argument `xformatter=:scientific`

does not help, as it just changes the radix instead of the whole number.

So, how can I format the ticks in e.g. scientific notation? I would like to get rid of the `base^exponent`

notation altogether.

I also tried passing an iterable of `String`

s to `xticks!`

, but it does not dispatch on it.

I tried to look here in the documentation, but could not anything else that might help.
