The R documentation says

             sys.function has not been implemented but could easily
             be.  It doesn't seem to be necessary as you can get
             what you want from sys.call.

I can't figure out how emulation sys.function using sys.call.  In
particular I'm trying to use the S match.arg function, which calls
sys.function.    

So, can someone either
1) help me get a version of match.arg that doesn't require sys.function
or
2) help me emulation sys.function with sys.call
or
3) provide a working sys.function in R

(All this is in an effort to get some Terry Therneaux's survival
functions working).

Thanks, --mike
