The help for prcomp on R 1.0.0 states that the component sdev of the
return value is the eigenvalues of the cov matrix.  Am I completely
mistaken, or should this be the _square root_ of the eigenvalues?

Also, the documentation is not very clear about how tol is used to omit
components.  (The _code_ is clear, though. :-)
