You could add it. You just need to create a matrix that will be large enough to hold all the simulated data sets and fill a column (or row if you prefer but column is probably better because of the way that matrices are stored) during each iteration of the simulation and remember to include that matrix in the returned object.

The reason that we didn't do that in the original design is because that matrix can become rather large when you have either a lot of data or a lot of simulations and we were working on the computers or 5 to 10 years ago. mailing list PLEASE do read the posting guide!
