[Rd] summary.default rounding on numeric seems inconsistent with other R behaviors

It is the old story of defined behaviour and expected outcomes. Hard to
change now.

So I would suggest you do something like this in your ~/.Rprofile:

R> smry <- function(...) summary(..., digits=6)
R> smry(155555L)
   Min. 1st Qu.  Median    Mean 3rd Qu.    Max.
 155555  155555  155555  155555  155555  155555

Maybe call it Summary() instead.
