[Rd] Curry: proposed new functional programming, er, function.

Hi all (especially R-core) I suppose,

With the introduction of the new functional programming functions into
base I thought I'd ask for a Curry() function. I use a simple one that
looks this:

Curry = function(FUN,...) { .orig = list(...);function(...)
do.call(FUN,c(.orig,list(...))) }

This comes in really handy when using say, heatmap():


or other functions where there are ... arguments, but it's not clear
where they should end up.
