Hi!  How about this one:

    data <- c(rep(1:4, times=3), 2, 1, 3, 2)
    dimnames <- list(NULL, c("x", "y", "z", "k"))
    ncol <- length(data)/4
    M <- matrix(data=data, nrow=ncol, ncol=ncol, dimnames=dimnames)
    FUN <- function(x) {
      out <- matrix(rep(x[1:3], times=x[4]),
                    byrow=TRUE, nrow=x[4])
      return(cbind(out, x[4]))
    newM <- do.call(rbind, apply(X=M, MARGIN=1, FUN=FUN))
    dimnames(newM) <- list(NULL, c("x", "y", "z", "k"))
    newM <- cbind(newM, "j"=sequence(M[,"k"]))
