This looks just like what I had in mind (though I was thinking matrix
rather than dataframe).  This I think is more useful (at least to the
kiddies I teach) than the S one.

BUT: I have been berated by my class for preparing examples with R and
trying to pass them off as S - they notice the minor differences.
Pehaps it would be possible to make a library "smodels" which is as
close to S as we can make it. I have an lm.summary and
lm.summary.print which could go into it.

In general I don't like compatibility boxes, but this seems harmless
