Note that S has a write(.) function which would be our
write.default(.)
your write.table would be our
write.data.frame
The only addition would be a 'write.matrix' which would be 'like'
write.data.frame, the only problem being that 'matrix' is not a class (yet).
[Note that in S4, everything has a class;
I'm voting for matrices to have a class in R ..]
write.default could 'despatch' to write.matrix if x is a matrix.
