dput / dget

The dump discussion reminded me of a problem I reported early but may not have
been filed as a bug (or may not have been considered a bug):

dput seems to rely on the setting of options()$digits to determine the precision
with which things are written, and the default digits does not seem adequate
(e.g. time series attributes can get truncated enough to make them invalid). A
default for dput of digits=16 would be better.
