Subject: Re: R-alpha: $tsp --> rather  tsp(.) !

Your approach is much nicer in two ways:

	1) exact integer arithmetic
	2) Using  accessor functions instead of "slots"
		 == better style of OO programming

Improvements (over S) like these should really be kept in R,
(since you can easily coerce S into emulating R :-)
