If you want k samples of size n, why generate k*n samples and put them
in a k-by-n matrix where you can do what you want to each sample:

k = 10
n = 100

If you need to do more complex things to each sample and if k is large
enough that you don't want the matrix sitting around in memory while
you do these things, you could also check out ?replicate .
