General "moving" function.

I'm a relatively new comer to R, and I've only just started writing my own R 
functions. However, I need some help for something which I'm sure is quite 
straight forward.

I want to write a function that will allow me to calculate "moving results" 
for a given vector. Ideally, the function will be of the form

foo<-function(vector1, funcname, lag)


for example, if I use arguments :

funcname = mean
lag = 10

Then foo will return a vector of 10 day moving average

Many Thanks
