Dear R-devel,

May I suggest the following, or something to its effect (taken from the R
Data Import Export manual, item #8 in section 2.1) be added to the
colClasses argument in ?read.table:

Note that colClasses and as.is are specified per column, not per variable,
and so
include the column of row names (if any).
