Or without plyr:

# Dennis's sample data but with shortened names ds <- data.frame(id = rep(1:3, each = 10),

```                      value1 = sample(seq_len(100), 30, replace = TRUE))
```
k <- data.frame(id = 1:3, sv = c(1, 3, 5))

do.call(rbind,

mapply( function(a,b) subset(ds, id==a)[-1:-b,], k\$id, k\$sv, SIMPLIFY=FALSE)
)
