Good Day,
  I can understand that after indexing a single column in a matrix, R will return a vector instead of the single column.  However, during the conversion to a vector, the column name is lost.
  I was wondering if it would be better to have R return a single column matrix (retaining the column name), instead of automatically converting to a vector.  Users could use as.vector() to convert afterwards.
