[R] appeal --- add sd to summary for univariates

just a short beg for the next R 2.3 version:

I know it is easy to add the sd into summary() in the source bowels of R---but everytime R is updated, my change disappears. :-(. I do not believe that R has an easy extension mechanism for univariate summaries, short of a function rewrite here. Could this please be added into R 2.3?

Aside, a logical ordering might also be:

   mean sd min q1 med q3 max
rather than have mean buried in between order statistics.
