[R] Looping over subsets

Possibly a dumb question, but I wonder if anyone can help me with this. What I want to do, essentially, is to loop over all ordered subsets of a given size of a certain set. Ultimately, the idea is to find the subset that maximises a certain value.

The set in question is likely large (the subset size is likely small, though), so things like combn don't seem to be a good solution. The biggest concern is keeping memory usage sane, but processing time is also fairly important.

Any ideas?
