One would normally want the original order that so that one can stack
a list, operate on the result and then unstack it back with the
unstacked result having the same ordering as the original.
LL <- list(z = 1:3, a = list())
# since we can't do s <- stack(LL,. drop = FALSE) do this instead:
s <- transform(stack(LL), ind = factor(as.character(ind), levels = names(LL)))
