Following on a conversation from Bioc2016, I think it would be good to have

class, that builds on top of SummarizedExperiment. The package author has

look through the entire list of methods defined for SummarizedExperiment,
Vector, and Annotated.

I think such a function should live somewhere easily accessible for
Bioconductor users. I worked out two implementations of this function which
you can see here:
