Suppose I analyze a log to create a histogram:

event E1 occurred N1 times
event E2 occurred N2 times
  ... for m total events
event Em occurred Nm times

The total number of occurrences is: T = Sum    Nj

I want to give this histogram to R and ask it to produce T random events such that approximately N1 instances of E1 are drawn, N2 instances of E2 drawn, and so forth.
