Can I suggest that vector() has an additional names argument? This would
make it more comparable with matrix() and array(). I frequently find
myself doing

        fred <- vector("list", length(happy))
        names(fred) <- names(happy)

when I would rather be doing

        fred <- vector("list", length(happy), names = names(happy))

Just a thought. Cheers, Jonathan.
