I may have jumped the gun, but on reflection I am not sure that your
question was at all clear. Is the first item desired the 6th item of
xx or the xx item referenced by the 6th item of id? You gave a
specification that would not allow any of us to check, since you did
not specify a random seed. We have no way of seeing what either of
your xx or id vectors look like since you did not provide either them
or the desired output. If it were the second specification then
