Paul -

I've got a first pass at such a thing, but it isn't clear what the
right "general purpose" solution is (currently, it consists of
a set of S4 classes which allow for comparison of results for
functions -- could be easily extended for S4 methods and classes, but
havn't had time to think it through.
