Hi folks,

I thought I recalled a request for turning a character string into an 
object name as in:




However, as.name and a few other uninformed attempts didn't even come

This isn't a very urgent request, but if anyone knows some trick to 
perform this transformation, I would like to hear about it. Thanks.
