of R for windows, and I know these are not supported. I am not asking
for support, but I thought the R developers would want to know about

# Define:

foo.page <- function(x) x

# Then, 


# actually invokes the pager (!) on object named "a" (if one is
# same thing happens if you define the function with the name

# Interestingly, 

foo.page("a" )

# will actually act as desired (returns "a")
