[Rd] tail recursion in R

Apparently Scheme is clever and can turn certain apparently recursive function calls into into non-recursive evaluations.

Does R do anything like that? I could find no reference to it in the language manual.

What I'm wondering is whether there are desirable ways to express recursion in R.

Thanks.
