[R] Matrix to data.frame with factors

Well, strictly speaking, this is still doing it "one variable at a
time." The interpreted loop is hidden, but it's still happening.
A loop free but clumsier approach is:
y <- data.frame(matrix(as.character(x),nrow = nrow(x)))
## Note also that the original column names will be lost and will have
to be added to the data frame.
It would also not surprise me if for such a small matrix that Rui's
version were faster.
