[Rd] printing coefficients with text

I want to print the coefficient estimates of a model in a way as consistent with other output in R as possible. stats provides the printCoefmat function for doing this, but there is one problem. I have an additional piece of textual information I want to put on the line with the other info on each coefficient.

The documentation for printCoefmat says the first argument must be numeric, which seems to rule this out.

I just realized I might be able to cheat by inserting the text into the name of the variable (fortunately there is just one item of text). I think that's in the names of the matrix given as the first argument to the function.

Are there any better solutions? Obviously I could just copy the method and modify it, but that creates duplicate code and loses the ability to track future changes to printCoefmat.
