Re: [R] Age of an object?

This would be extraordinarily helpful, but I have not thought of a graceful way to do it. Everything in R now has a class attribute, but a timestamp for such simple things as vectors seems like overkill. On the other hand, those of us writing packages could implement this pretty easily for complex objects we produce.
