Subject: boxplot()'s return value names

Something worth discussing,

I think these output names NEED a change :

> boxplot(rt(250,df=3), plot=F)
    $"1"
    $"1"$stats
    [1] -2.7995357 -0.7170382 0.1109581 0.8426811 3.0483316

    $"1"$n
    [1] 250

    $"1"$conf
    [1] -0.04490152 0.26681765

    $"1"$out
     [1] 5.784389 4.766206 -3.932449 -3.460407 -3.695599 5.486126 -3.141079
     [8] 4.484507 12.731848 3.867611 4.040786 4.137455 3.772149 7.693779
    [15] -3.431560 3.860079 -4.087880 3.766799 4.497379 -3.543726 -6.196635
    [22] -6.322201

- "1" should rather be 1

and

 str(boxplot(data.frame(x=1:10,y=rt(10,df=4)),plot=F))

List of 2
 $ x:List of 4
  ..$ stats: num [1:5] 1 3 5.5 8 10
  ..$ n : int 10
  ..$ conf : num [1:2] 3 8
  ..$ out : int(0)
 $ y:List of 4
  ..$ stats: num [1:5] -1.4097 0.0251 0.4533 1.0871 1.4427
  ..$ n : int 10
  ..$ conf : num [1:2] -0.0774 0.9840
  ..$ out : num(0)
 - attr(*, "row.names")= chr [1:10] "1" "2" "3" "4" "5" "6" "7" "8" "9" "10"

where the `trailing' "row.names" attribute seems *very* unnecessary.

{I'm in a hurry..}
