[Rd] dots for sample

Dear R-Developers,

could 'sample' gain a ... argument?

As a convenience function, I added a sample Method to my hyperSpec 
class. This function however has a flag indicating whether the results 
should be returned directly as a hyperSpec object or rather as indices 
that give a random sample.

For the moment, I use SetGeneric to add the dots argument, but this of 
course gives a warning that the base function sample is overwritten (and 
my colleagues are almost as scared of warnings as of errors...)
