[Rd] reducing a too-large matrix obtained with allocMatrix()

I have some C code (for a shared lib called via .External) that uses
PROTECT(w= allocMatrix(REALSXP, m, n));
mostly successfully. In rare cases, though, the row count m will be
an overestimate. Is there a way to reallocate the matrix in-place,
reAllocMatrix (w,m-excess,n) /* where excess is > 0 */
to chop off the last excess rows of w? I only find out about the
excess rows during the single pass over the data made to copy it from
its source to w.
Short of this, all I know to do is allocate a matrix of the proper
size and copy the values. Any other ways to do this?
