[R] Indexing time series objects

Hi. I have a question concerning the easiest way to index a time series 
object holding some stock quotes. An example:

> ibm <- get.hist.quote("IBM",start="2000-01-01")

My question is:- Suppose I want to know the stock quotes on 2000-01-03. Which 
is the easiest way to index the "ibm" time series object to get them?
I got what I wanted using:

But I'm sure there is a much better way to get it!

In summary, my problem is to find the easiest way to convert from my 
"natural" way of thinking on the quotes (which is date-based) into the 
indexing schema of time series objects, which by looking at the code of 
"get.hist.quote" is based on the conversion into the number of days (using 
"julian") from an origin.

Thank you for any help.
