Probably been debated elsewhere....
I note that R's `data` function does not respect default.stringsAsFactors
By my lights, it should, especially as it is documented to call read.table, which DOES respect.
Oh, but: http://r.789695.n4.nabble.com/stringsAsFactors-FALSE-tp921891p921893.html
Compelling. I have to agree.
So, I change my mind.
By my lights, `data` should then be documented to NOT respect default.stringsAsFactors.
