Hi all,

Has anyone thought about developing persistent (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persistent_data_structure) "functional" data structures for R? A persistent data frame, for example, would seem like a possible way of drastically reducing memory consumption for many common problems. Would developing a family of a few such algorithms make for a good summer of code project?

Regards,

Hadley
