[R] efficient way of aggregating two variables at once

	I'm working out d' and therefore I'd like to aggregate two variables  
at once (hits and false alarms).  In  the raw data frame is subject,  
stimulus_presence, and response information.  I aggregate this into a  
table now currently by separating out the target_presence=true data  
and working out a hit rate and then workout out the false alarm rate  
from the target_presence=false data.  Then I cbind the "x" column  
from the false alarm aggregate to the hit rate data.  Then I can also  
append a dprime column if I wish.  I am just inquiring as to whether  
there is some facility I am missing for aggregating the variables  
simultaneously or just generating the d' in one step.
