In order not to compute on the internal structure but to use extractor 
methods, you could use
for the covariance matrix and the standard errors respectively.

Is that desired or just a by-product? From the description of the coef() 
generic, it seems that coef() should only extract coefficients (not their 
standard errors, Wald statistics, and p values).
