OK this confused me. I thought object oriented coding should be
preferred because it allows cleaner, more efficient coding. But your
reply suggests it should be preferred because "R" is more efficient in
that way. Anyhow, this thread should indeed not become a discussion
point for this and I should read about it.

Thus, being that compiled C code is much faster than interpreted R code, there is significant efficiency to be achieved by taking an object oriented approach to key operations.
