Symlog-like axis type

It’s about “symlog” axis type, which we need badly.

I’ve seen these github issues:

but they are quite old and I probably won’t get any answers anytime soon out there! The question is:
Is there any workaround for this? Any way to represent axis as symlog manually, by passing a function or somehow manipulating the ticks to visually represent the data on symlog scale?
