Can I suggest that vector() has an additional names argument? This would
make it more comparable with matrix() and array(). I frequently find
fred <- vector("list", length(happy))
names(fred) <- names(happy)
when I would rather be doing
fred <- vector("list", length(happy), names = names(happy))
Just a thought. Cheers, Jonathan.
