Wouldn't the best alternative be to combine flexibility and accuracy
into one alternative? I mean, I'd still use prcomp after reading the
help pages, and I'd put more weight on accuracy than on flexibility. A
quick exploitation of the princomp would yield the attached "flexible
prcomp is more flexible at least in one point: it can handle data with
less units than variables.
