[Bioc-devel] Possible to export coerce2() from S4Vectors?

Dear all,

Are there any plans to export coerce2() from the S4Vectors namespace, like other exported internal utilities such as showAsCell() and setListElement()?

I have a couple classes that inherit from DataFrame, and some inherited methods (like [[<-) break in certain situations due to calls to coerce2() that coerce arguments to a regular DataFrame (instead of my subclass). This could be fixed if I were able to implement a coerce2() method for my subclass.

Any suggestions on how to approach problems like this when inheriting from DataFrame and other Vector derivatives?

Many thanks,
