[R] Permutation Distribution

Is there an elegant way to do the following:  

Dataset consists of 2 variables: var1: some measurements, and var2: a grouping variable with two values, 1 and 2. There are (say) 10 measurements from group 1 and 15 measurements from group 2. The idea is to study the permutation distribution of mean(group 1) * mean(group2). One way would be to permute 1s and 2s and select the corresponding measurements; calculate the difference in means. Redo this 1000 times, say. Etc.  

Any help is much appreciated.
