In such situations, I either extend the series first to a completely
regular time grid, or modify the function that I use for aggregation to do
exactly what I want it to do.

I don't think
aggregate(z, as.yearqtr, sum)
is really cumbersome. And the rest is just coercion back and forth between
"ts" and "zoo"/"zooreg" (which can't be much easier, I guess).
