Hi all,
Runmean and the related run* functions currently can't deal with NA
values. Kasper asked for a na.rm argument a long while ago and back then
Patrick agreed to add this in one of the upcoming releases

Is that still on someone's radar? I would really like to see that in
runmean for the same reasons Kasper pointed out: NAs and zeros are not
necessarily equivalent in Rle vectors, and I would like to be able to
smooth data that contains NAs.
